PyroScience transformed their year-long experience in innovative lab sensor solutions towards a flexible underwater sensor platform and recently launched a unique all-in-one optical sensor technology to monitor the health of our oceans.
AquapHOx is a revolutionary optical sensor technology for monitoring critical parameters and their dynamics in open ocean, the deep sea and in coastal ecosystems. It is available as underwater long-term loggers for stand-alone operation during long monitoring approaches and as transmitters with real-time data transmission for ultra-fast O2 water column profiling or eddy covariance measurements. The flexible deep-sea multi-analyte loggers / transmitters feature a titanium housing for operation down to 4000 m water depth and one optical channel compatible to various formats of optical O2, pH, and temperature sensors with proprietary underwater connector.
The available sensor portfolio based on unique REDFLASH technology offers unmatched flexibility for multiple applications with the same AquapHOx read-out device, including:
- the most sensitive trace O2 measurements in oxygen minimum zones or de-oxygenation events,
- sensitive measurements of ocean pH on the total scale even under harsh deep-sea conditions with neglectable impact of salinity,
- contactless read-out of incubation chambers with integrated sensors and
- profiling over surface structures, in sediments and along gradients at high spatial resolution.
Simply exchange the sensor head, choose between different analytes (pH, O2 or T) and sensor formats and deploy the all-in-one logger / transmitter down to 4000m water depth. This new tool is ideally suited for global pH and O2 monitoring of the status of our oceans to understand and monitor climate change, biogeochemical cycles and the deep sea.
