Lasers! Killer algae! Robots!

The prospect of interacting with a “laser robot that finds killer algae” was a draw with local kids at the Woods Hole Science And Technology Education Partnership’s (WHSTEP) Family Science Night, Thinking Big by Looking Small at the Marine Biological Laboratories.  McLane used the Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) to image phytoplankton from local water collected in Eel Pond.  The
A team from Israel has deployed a McLane WTS-LV Dual Filter pump and Sediment traps on the Deep Moored Flux station in the Eastern Mediterranean. View below or click here for the YouTube link. The Large Volume Water Transfer System (WTS-LV) is a large volume single-event sampler that collects suspended and dissolved particulate samples in
For Dr. Michiyo Yamamoto-Kawai, of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (TUMSAT), recovering a year’s worth of RAS-500 water samples in the Arctic Ocean was as exciting and valuable as finding rare diamonds. In 2015, Dr. Kawai and her team deployed the RAS-500 in the Beaufort Gyre during an expedition aboard the Canadian Coast

McLane Heads Back to School

Marine biology students at St. John Paul II high school on Cape Cod, MA, saw science in action when McLane engineers visited with an Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) and other instruments. In the hands-on presentation, the fifty 10th and 11th graders collected a water sample from a local harbor and then watched the IFCB capture images of suspended particles. McLane
