Aquatic systems and solutions, designed by professionals and built to drive your research forward.

We engineer life support systems, dosing systems and aquatic housing using reliable Iwaki metering pumps, the industry leader. Iwaki pumps, known for their quiet operation, have been the aquarium pump of choice for decades.
With biomedical research lab management experience and aquaculture expertise, we bring your lab the most reliable, efficient systems to provide the results you need to drive your research forward. Iwaki Aquatic only uses high quality components and system configuration is designed with your ergonomics and safety in mind.
Our systems save technician time, save on maintenance and are designed from the end user's perspective.

Animal Health Starts with Water Quality

Reproducible results at the bench are directly correlated with the water quality, environmental conditions and animal health. Consistent parameters in the facility yield good data. Iwaki Aquatic combines two decades of aquatic system design expertise and state-of-the-art technology to provide you with excellent water quality and a very stable system.
