Having conducted sampling expeditions since the late 19th century means that SAMS is well equipped with old and new sampling capabilities.
SAMS has a range of equipment suitable for sampling and measuring the marine environment along with the expertise to deploy the equipment and analyse samples and data.
Most of this equipment is available for use on our vessels and external hire.
We also have the capability to support, test and calibrate this equipment thanks to our workshop facilities and staff.
