Ocean Business 2021

Chelsea Technologies is exhibiting at this year Ocean Business 2021 from Tuesday 12th to Thursday 14th October 2021 at the National Oceanography Centre, in Southampton, UK

Discover innovations at the forefront of ground-breaking ocean technology at Ocean Business 2021. Ocean Business 2021 is a free event for everyone in the ocean science and technology community.

Visit us on Booth #T8 to discuss your current and upcoming projects, as well as learn more about our latest inspirational technology.

On display are a range of sensors and systems for marine science, including Multi-parameter and active fluorometers for the following applications:

  • Primary Productivity Estimation
  • In situ Algal Monitoring
  • Pollution Monitoring
  • Nutrient Stress Analysis
  • Climate Change Research
  • Monitoring of Hydrocarbons

Our sales executive Ben Goymer will also be on hand to demonstrate labSTAF in a series of live sessions:

  • Laboratory demo: Discovery room, 12th October, 11am-12pm
  • On-board demo: R.V. Callista, 13th October, 1:30pm-2:30pm


  • Measure – A fast, lightweight device to measure algal activity
  • Automate – continuous automated data measurement
  • Versatile – Suitable for use in all environments
  • Precision – Wide dynamic range with extreme sensitivity at low biomass
  • Practical – Low cost, robust portable unit designed to be operated by a single person
  • Inform – Health, growth and type of algae datasets


LabSTAF to detect algal blooms

  • Analysis of the biochemistry and ecology of aquatic systems
  • Verification of satellite data
  • Facilitates measurement at scales from mesoscale eddies to oceanic fronts
  • Climate change research and modelling
  • Monitoring of algal bloom development and community structure
  • Ecological monitoring to manage water catchments
  • Identify and mitigate sources affecting water quality in catchments
  • Quantitative assessment for the fundamental systems driving the global carbon cycle
  • Measurement of PSII photochemical flux per unit volume (JVPII) to provide an upper limit to PhytoPP at high spatiotemporal scales
