We design sampling, imaging, sensing and data solutions for microplastics and fibers in marine, freshwater and water treatment systems.


Microplastic pollution threatens environmental and human health. To stop microplastic pollution at the source, researchers must collect and analyze sufficient microplastics data, but the equipment available to do so has been too large, heavy, inaccessible, not-fit-for-purpose and archaic.

Ocean Diagnostics designs technology specifically to overcome the challenges of sampling and analyzing  microplastics in marine, freshwater and water treatment systems. We help you to streamline your processes and increase the data needed to influence change.
