McLane Research Laboratories manufactures time-series oceanographic profilers, samplers, and flotation. Our objective is to enable worldwide investigators to achieve their research and scientific goals by providing advanced, cost-effective instrumentation. We are committed to supporting customer scientific needs from proposal planning to deployment and recovery.
The company provides advanced time-series samplers, profilers, and flotation to the oceanographic community worldwide. McLane developed two profilers:the lce Tethered Profiler (ITP) and the : McLane Moored Profiler. The ITP is an autonomous time series instrument that vertically profiles the water column under the ice collecting data such as conductivity, temperature, and depth in situ. Data is transmitted real-time via inductive modem and surface package. The MMP also profiles the water colunm along a fixed tether while carrying an array of oceanographic sensors.
McLane manufactures a number of samplers that collect suspended and dissolved particulate samples in situ including the Imaging Flowcytobot (in 2013) sediment traps, remote access samplers, phytoplankton samplers, zooplankton samplers, and large volume water transfer systems. The Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) collects discrete water samples, concentrate microorganisms or particles and identify microorganisms and t
