Hydro-Bios was founded on 9th May, 1960 and now is more than 50 years old. So we are the oldest company in Germany manufacturing instrumentation for oceanographic and limnological/hydrological investigations. We deliver customers in more than 90 countries worldwide.
We are wellknown as manufacturing specialist for watersampling, either using water samplers as a single instrument or in a rosette with CTD, or using planktonnets to catch biological material - with smaller nets handheld or with larger systems requiring research vessel. All these instruments are developed and manufactured under our most important issue: able to work reliable under most different environmental conditions, i.e. poles with – 40°C as well as in pacific areas with + 60°C on deck or more. We know about the situation on board if the device “goes on strike” and try to avoid such situations. If something like that nevertheless happens – even may be with instruments from our factory - we do our very best to solve the problems anytime
Our main aim is to satisfy the requirements of our customers and it seems that we have reached that within the last 50 years. And we promise to continue in doing it.
