Hydrolab multiprobes are built around a common set of reliable sensors and electronic components. Packaged in a rugged, non-corrosive housing, our multiprobes also include user-friendly software, printer-ready data formats, and compatibility with third-party devices.
Hydrolab introduced the first multiparameter sonde in 1968, and set the standard for water quality multiprobes worldwide. Since then, our instruments have continued to perform reliably and accurately, even under the most adverse field conditions. Hydrolab’s record of innovation has been consistently strong throughout its history, and since joining Hach Company, our rate of innovation has increased even further.
