The POD Sampler is a lightweight air sampler for personal and environmental monitoring
Diffusive sampling for VOCs
The POD Sampler (POcket Diffusive Sampler) is a compact and versatile radial diffusive sampler for VOCs, compatible with analysis by thermal desoprtion. Developed in partnership with pioneers in radial sampling at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre at Ispra, Italy (the European reference laboratory for air pollution), the POD Sampler’s design results in exceptional performance.
Compared with conventional (axial) samplers, radial samplers have a larger diffusive surface area of adsorption and a shorter diffusive pathway. This results in faster uptake rates, enabling shorter sampling times or increased sensitivity.
