Integrative Monitoring

We offer various integrated sampling programs based on drawing air through filters and absorbents for both indoor and outdoor monitoring as well as soil vapour testing.

Applications

  • Environmental monitoring
  • Odour profiling
  • Chemical warfare agents
  • Material Emission Studies

Samplers and Capabilities

We use specialized sampling techniques as per EPA TO Methods that can be supplied for multiple components including the following:

  • Filters:  High volume sampling for TSP and PM10.
  • PUF Tubes: High volume sampling for PCBs and PAHs.
  • Sep - Pak Cartridges and Gastec Tubes: Formaldehyde and Phenol.
  • SILONITE Canisters and Tedlar Bags: VOCs.

Sampling Programs

We can provide you with integrated sampling programs based on drawing air through filters and absorbents for multiple components including:

  • High volume sampling for TSP and PM10 with filters.
  • High volume sampling for PCB and PAH with PUF.
  • Collection of whole air samples in Tedlar bags and polished Stainless Steel (i.e. SUMMA Canisters) for VOCs.
  • Formaldehyde and Phenol through Sep-Pak Cartridges and Gastec Tubes.
  • Specialized sampling as per EPA TO Methods.

Summa Canisters

AGAT Laboratories offers Silonite Canisters, the latest in SUMMA testing technology, for the collection of indoor, ambient and stationary air sources and soil vapour. These canisters are used for volatile organic determination in ambient indoor air by EPA TO-14A/15A- Canister Sampling.

Silonite technology increases the integrity of samples by preventing degradation by exposure to sunlight and the permeation of VOCs through the vessel walls. This allows easy shipping and storage over longer periods of time.
