ABOUT US

Deep South Samplers began with a question: was it possible to design an airtight sampler that could collect water samples from just above the ocean floor without needing a ship mounted crane? In late 2016, we set out to discover if it could be done. After an intense design phase, a stint of welding, and final assembly, the steel VDBS-3L was the result. The prototype served admirably on its first year-long deployment, collecting over 150 water samples from all across the western Atlantic, and showing that airtight, handheld bottom sampling was possible. 

 

Since the prototype, we've expanded our sampler line to include multiple material types (e.g., steel, stainless, aluminum), and we've begun to explore brand new sampler designs to accommodate different research needs such as surface sampling, and collecting samples from personal watercraft rather than full size vessels. Research programs in multiple Gulf states have commissioned samplers to meet their project needs, creating a customer base that stretches from Mississippi to Florida.

 

All of our products are built to order, and built to last. We offer various product packages to accommodate any budget, whether you want a purchase with ongoing service and maintenance, a one time purchase, an equipment rental, or to design your own unique sampler. Ask for a quote today!
