Work description

Develop the mechanical solution for the modified BioSampler system for eDNA realtime water sampling and filtwering in the context of the FCT Connect2Oceans project. This work plan comprises the redesign and implementation of a mechanical and micro-hydraulics solution for the system to be underwater as well as the consideration for its use in extreme weather conditions such as occurring in polar regions. It also includes the test and validation activities and the support in the implementation in the field. As part of the work the development of all associated documentation and manuals is also a requirement.
