About SensorLab

SensorLab. A bit of history.

We are a young and small company established in 2011. We develop high accuracy environmental instruments with a special focus in oceanographic research. Our product line includes high accuracy pH sensors and low power, high stability spectrophotometric led light sources. We also work on customized products for specific customer requirements.

Our pH sensors are the fruit of many years of development in collaboration with Dr. Melchor González-Dávila at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The first sensor prototypes were developed in 2007 and they are still being used today. The SP100-SM was released in 2011 being the first official Sensorlab submarine pH sensor. This sensor was the precursor of the current SP101-SM released in 2013 featuring several improvements over the SP100-SM such as smaller size, lower power consumption, increased corrosion resistance and an enhanced firmware.


SensorLab products meet strict scientific standards, which make them suitable to be used successfully at different oceanographic experiments. The quality of the work performed by SensorLab is endorsed by the following scientific publications:
