Abstract
Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment or in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Techshot solution for a High Pressure Specimen Chamber is a solid design incorporating modern materials, innovative hatch and containment features with a unique adjustable pressure compensator for specimen collection down to 2000 meters. The Techshot High Pressure Specimen Chamber is an intuitive, user-friendly system allowing for easy pre and post containment operation by human and remotely operated vehicles alike. Techshot¿s experience developing specimen enclosures for harsh environments permeates this simplistic yet highly innovate High Pressure Specimen Chamber
