Tracing the residual levels of chemical threat agents is of paramount importance when deciding to return affected areas to their normal routine – and especially when reintroducing evacuated populations. Developed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, this active sampler device is designed for sampling of very low concentrations of a wide range of hazardous materials in the air. The device is based on a Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) tube and an air mini-pump powered by standard size “c” batteries. The SPE tube contains a polymeric sorbent with a high surface area capable of adsorbing target molecules in the air. When finished, the SPE tube can be removed and sent for analysis in a certified laboratory utilizing standard procedure for extracting target chemicals.
Air sampling of very low concentrations of chemical threat agents. Fits a wide range of chemical materials.
Lightweight (530 grams w/batteries) and compact (160 X 110 X 45mm) for easy storage, carrying and deployment. Straightforward interface for laymen use.
Two operational modes: Simple-to-use with two modes of operation – short (1 hour) and long (6 hours) in accordance with on-scene requirements. Batteries: Operates with commercially available batteries (size “c”). Relatively low-cost, thus fitting the requirement for wide deployment.
