Ocean Optics, part of Ocean Insight, partners with researchers to ask the “what-if” questions that advance us toward a safer, cleaner and healthier world. We team with researchers to create breakthrough solutions to today’s biggest challenges.

Discovery begins with exploration 

We understand the constraints facing researchers. You need equipment that’s flexible, accurate and can easily integrate with other technology.

Nearly three decades ago, Ocean Optics launched the first miniature spectrometer and pioneered the concept of bringing the instrument to the sample.

Now, we’ve expanded our optical sensing technology portfolio and added the sensing tools, application support and service that enable confident experimentation and breakthrough discovery anywhere, anytime. Our goal is to make your research a success.

Perform a wide range of spectroscopic experiments, making it a valuable tool for learning and research. Spectroscopy Kits provide users with versatile tools for utilizing absorbance, color, reflectance, and other techniques.

Ocean Insight’s spectral sensing tools and know-how have the power to help researchers, scientists and educators see the world differently.

  • Overcome traditional instrument limitations
  • Lower barriers to exploration
  • Encourage experimentation
  • Enable breakthroughs
  • Enjoy the freedom of spectrometer flexibility and configurability
  • Have confidence in research results with reliable spectral equipment
