Mini Micro Profilers

A novel portable instrument has been designed for in-situ microsensor measurements. The micro profiler, which can be equipped with microsensors for measurements of oxygen, pH, sulphide (S -- or H2S) and temperature, is ideal for a wide range of applications including:


Profiling measurements can be carried out with a spatial resolution of 50 µm in numerous locations including:


Weight, in air 10 kg
Weight, in water 8 kg
Total height 1.0 m
Distance between feet 0,75 m

The mini microprofilers are developed in cooperation with -
Dr. Søren Rysgaard, Senior Scientist, National Enviromental Research Institute, Denmark
Jens K. Gundersen, Institute of Biological Scienses, University of Aarhus Denmark.
