Why use an automatic sampler?

Automatic water samplers offer accurate and programmable collection, reducing the risk of human error. They allow regular, in-depth and on-going monitoring of water quality, reduce risk for operators, and automate repetitive tasks. They facilitate long-term analysis of water quality.

How to choose a stationary or portable sampler version

The choice between a stationary or portable automatic water sampler depends on the nature of your study. A stationary sampler is suitable for long-term monitoring, permanent installations, and integration with other devices. It offers stability and cost reduction at specific locations. On the other hand, a portable sampler is ideal for mobility, temporary operations, and site variability. Consider the frequency of travel, need for on-going monitoring, and flexibility required. The choice will be guided by the specific requirements of your mission and the changing characteristics of your study site.

What are the advantages of using an auto-sampler over manual methods?

Automatic water samplers offer significant advantages over manual methods. They ensure accurate, regular and automated sample collection, eliminating human variation. Programming enables on-going monitoring and detection of temporary changes. These devices reduce the risk to users by minimizing exposure to hazardous conditions. They also automate repetitive tasks thereby optimizing the use of resources. In addition, some models protect sample integrity through cooling. In short, automatic samplers improve efficiency, accuracy and safety when collecting water samples.

Why use a refrigerated sampler?

It is essential to use a refrigerated auto-sampler to ensure sample integrity and accurate analytical results. By maintaining a low temperature, this device protects the stability of volatile compounds to prevent their degradation. This is crucial for heat sensitive analyses such as detecting organic contaminants. In addition, low temperature storage inhibits bacterial growth, thus protecting the microbiological quality of samples.AQUALABO refrigerated samplers are particularly useful in long-term studies, where protecting the chemical and biological properties of samples is crucial. They are also vital in stringent environmental applications, where compliance with water quality standards is required. In summary, using a refrigerated sampler provides optimal sample protection, to ensure the validity of chemical and microbiological analyses, and thus meet the strict requirements of long-term water quality monitoring.

FAQ about water sampling

The water samplers can be connected to other measuring instruments such as flowmeters (flow servo-control), or to physical-chemical sensors, with sampling triggered at a certain threshold (event servo-control).

AQUALABO samplers comply with the ISO 5667 standard, which governs the framework and use of samplers. They ensure compliance with standards by facilitating representative sampling for physical-chemical and microbiological analyses. These devices thus contribute to the efficient monitoring of water quality, ensuring reliable results in compliance with international and local standards.

The choice between a single or multi-bottle automatic water sampler depends on the specific needs of your study. A single bottle sampler is suitable for simple tasks at low cost; ideal for single analyses. On the other hand, a multi-bottle sampler gives increased flexibility for complex studies requiring simultaneous sampling at various depths or locations. You should take in account the variety of samples, frequency of analyses, and versatility required. The choice will depend on the complexity of your project and your sample collection requirements.

The compatibility of an auto-sampler with various analytical methods depends on its design, sample characteristics and specific method requirements. In general, these devices are designed to be versatile; suitable for techniques such as spectrometry, chromatography or PCR. However, checking compatibility with the specific technical requirements of each method and sample characteristics is recommended to ensure the successful integration into your analytical process.
