Successful acceptance test of high pressure samplers for India
Publication date: Wednesday 11 January 2017
A delegation of the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) visited NIOZ for performing Acceptance Tests for their new NIOZ High Pressure Sampling system. All the tests were performed successfully.
The system can take samples of microbes in the deep ocean to a depth of 6,000 m, and bring them to the surface while maintaining their ambient pressure.
For NIOT this is a next step in their deep ocean microbial sampling and incubation project.
