Profilers & Samplers

McLane Research Laboratories manufactures time-series oceanographic profilers and samplers with the objective to enable worldwide investigators to achieve their research and scientific goals. Below we feature 2 profilers and 2 samplers. ROMOR distributes all of McLane's products throughout Canada.


Imaging FlowCytobot

DSC 2510 new IFCB

Application: The Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) is an in-situ automated submersible imaging flow cytometer that generates images of particles in-flow taken from the aquatic environment.  The IFCB uses a combination of flow cytometric and video technology to capture high resolution images of suspended particles. Laser- induced fluorescence and light scattering from individual particles are measured and used to trigger targeted image acquisition; the optical and image data are then transmitted to shore in real time.Collected images during continuous monitoring can be processed externally with automated image classification software. Images can be classified to the genus or even species level with demonstrated accuracy comparable to that of human experts.

Ice Tethered Profiler

100 4969 ITP MAVS.edit

Application: The Ice Tethered Profiler (ITP) is an autonomous time-series instrument that vertically profiles the water column under the ice and collects in situ measurements of salinity and CTD temperature data. Data is automatically transmitted near real-time via inductive modem. Profiling depth, time intervals and pressure stops are user-defined, and profiling patterns can span specific seasons or timeframes.






McLane Moored Profiler

100 3163 SUNA Edit 2

Application: The McLane Moored Profiler (MMP) is an autonomous time-series instrument that profiles the water column by traveling along a fixed wire carrying an array of sensors. Depending on the sensors that are selected, in situ measurements can include conductivity, temperature, depth, cholorophyll-a and dissolved oxygen data. An optional underwater inductive modem provides real-time communication between the MMP and a surface buoy or seabed node. Profiling depth, time intervals and pressure stops are user-defined, and profiling patterns can span specific seasons or timeframes.



Remote Access Sampler

Application: The Remote Access Sampler (RAS-500) is a deep ocean or coastal time-series water sampler that autonomously collects pure, unbiased specimens using a user-defined sample schedule. The RAS- 500 collects ambient water and suspended material in individual Tedlar® bags for biological, dissolved major and minor nutrient, dissolved trace metal, or dissolved organic carbon analysis.
