The CytoSub with a battery pack.

The CytoSense instrument can be made submersible by adding a specially designed hull, either for shallow waters (up to 20 meters below surface) or one for deep waters (up to 200 meters below surface, covering the complete photonic zone). Multiple measurements can be done, so this setup is ideal for depth profiling applications.  The high pressure of the water at these depths is kept separate from the flow cell, which operates at normal pressure. This implies that you can easily use your CytoSub as a benchtop lab device too! 

CytoSub specific qualities
