A warm welcomes::can is the only firm in the world that has given its heart and soul to online water quality measurement. Since our foundation in 1999, nothing else has come out of our development department, nothing else has come out of our production sites.
Today our product range covers an absolutely state of the art measuring instrument for each individual parameter for typical applications in the areas of water, waste water, environmental monitoring, and industrial applications. Whether it is a simple pH sensor or a complex spectral probe, s::can measuring instruments are intelligent and compatible with each other in s::can systems and with third-party systems.
Organically developed, constantly tried and tested, and often proven: Optical works best. It doesn‘t matter whether it is COD, TOC, N03, N02, TSS, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, or many others besides. Whenever an optical method is available, we use it; when not, we develop one. Optical methods are the most reliable, the simplest, have the lowest cost, and, above all, they are usually the most accurate. If ever a measurement is impossible by optical methods, then we just use the best alternative method that comes closest to our focus.
We are proud of having set new standards in water monitoring along the way. For example, in 2000 when we brought our first spectro::lyser™ to the market we established online UV spectrometry in sensor format in the marketplace years ahead of the competition. Today, with about 7000 systems sold, we are the undisputed global market leader in this segment and can continue to call ourselves the technological leader.

About our prices
Have you ever been annoyed with a cheap printer that you just bought, only to find that the first time you had to change the ink cartridge it cost almost as much as the printer itself? Unfortunately a similar trend can be detected in the sector of water quality measurement technology - but not at s::can. s::can does not try to make its profits from the sale of “consumables”. more
