Who are we?

We are a national analytical service dedicated to high quality measurements of phytoplankton pigments.

In parallel, we work on:

  - a research and development activity focused on methodology and data interpretation.

  - a database of vertical profiles of phytoplankton pigment concentrations across the global ocean.

  - training of technical staff applied to pigment analysis and data interpretation.

  - HPLC intercomparaison exercises.


For a good functioning of the service, the SAPIGH platform is autofinanced.
