What is Chemcatcher?
The original design concept of the Chemcatcher® was to develop an easy to use sampler for monitoring a range of pollutant classes by altering the combination of commercially available receiving phase and diffusion limiting membrane used. The use of quality controlled, commercially available solid receiving phases allows high reproducibility as compared to other hand-made passive sampler devices.
Chemcatcher® comprises a robust, reusable three-component a low-cost, three component, water-tight PTFE body. Two different designs are available to accommodate different types of commercially available 47 mm diameter receiving phase disks:
3M EmporeTM Chemcatcher®: weighs 83 g and houses the 47 mm 3M EmporeTM range of receiving phases (e.g. C18, SDB, chelating, anion and cation exchange and RAD disks). As well as the appropriate EmporeTM receiving disk, a diffusion-limiting membrane is also required.
Horizon AtlanticTM Chemcatcher®: weighs 130 g and houses the 47 mm Horizon AtlanticTM SPE disks as receiving phases (e.g. HLB, C18 and DVB). As well as the appropriate AtlanticTM receiving disk, a diffusion-limiting membrane is also required.
A number of our facilities are also available for use in commercial testing and consultancy.
