First established in 1989, Geotek is a world-leading designer and manufacturer of a wide range of specialist instrumentation for geoscience applications, focusing on high-resolution, non-destructive analysis of geological cores.

Geotek’s systems – including the company’s original Multi-Sensor Core Logger (MSCL) – deploy a suite of geophysical and geochemical sensors, enabling measurements to be obtained rapidly, accurately and automatically on sediment or rock cores.

The company also designs and manufactures an extensive range of digital 2D and 3D X-ray CT, XRF and hyperspectral imaging systems, as well as specialist pressure core analysis systems, which allow for preserved geological cores to be accessed and analysed under in-situ pressures and temperatures.

Geotek systems are suitable for use in either an onshore laboratory/core repository environment, or on-board survey and drilling vessels. Applications vary from academic users examining the sedimentary record in oceans and lakes for climate research, to industrial applications in the mining, hydrocarbon and offshore geotechnical sectors.

Alongside its instrumentation product suite, the company has also developed a sophisticated Managed Service offering, which enables customers to maximise data recovery from their geological samples held within core repositories, laboratory and field locations. 

Headquartered in Daventry in the UK, Geotek has to date supplied its products and services to over 40 countries worldwide. The business is a past winner of the Queen’s Award for International Trade.
