McLane Research Laboratories was founded in 1983 and manufactures advanced time-series oceanographic profilers, samplers and flotation to the oceanographic community. The objective at McLane is to enable worldwide investigators to achieve their research and scientific goals by providing advanced, cost-effective instrumentation.
McLane manufactures a number of profilers, samplers and mooring products that are used for scientific ventures worldwide. McLane develops two Profilers: the Ice Tethered Profiler (ITP) and the McLane Moored Profiler (MMP). These autonomous time-series instruments collect data while traveling on a fixed mooring wire. Samplers that collect suspended and dissolved particulate samples in situ include sediment traps, remote access samplers, large volume water transfer systems and zooplankton samplers. in 2013, McLane announced a new instrument - the Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) which an automated submersible imaging flow cytometer that generates images of particles in-flow taken from the aquatic environment. Depending on the target population, the IFCB can generate around 10,000 high resolution images per hour. McLane mooring products include glass flotation modules depth-rated to 7,000 meters, glass instrument housings, mooring recovery floats and steel buoys.
