Ocean Insight within spectrophotometry
The company was founded in the late 80’s, as Ocean Optics, and received a federal grant for a marine pH sensor. As a part of their project, the team needed a compact spectrophotometer to fit into a small, underwater housing. As the team found out that none existed, they decided to make their own, and in 1992, the company was able to release the world’s first miniature spectrophotometer. Since then, Ocean Insight has evolved its technology, expanded its offering, and obtained vital partners, which is why Ocean Insight has such a broad manufacturing and supply network today.
Ocean Insight has discovered, refined and delivered new approaches for more than 25 years in order to solve problems with spectroscopy and imaging technologies. Ocean Insight’s FLAME-CHEM spectrometer is a small footprint instrument with performance and flexibility.
