Concentration and Extraction Techniques for Air Samples
High-volume air samplers are currently the most effective method to collect and concentrate air samples for chemical and biological agent detection at very low concentrations. Midwest Research Institute developed an ultra high-volume concentrating air sampler that uses an electrostatic precipitator with recirculating fluids and a proprietary vapor adsorbent. The system is capable of operating at 10,000 L/min while efficiently collecting chemical agents, agent precursors and degradation products, toxic industrial chemicals, and biological agents. The samples are delivered in matrices that are compatible with existing, validated analytical systems. For additional information please fill out the Contact Information Form.
