How do you sample air?

If you want to perform analyses on volatile organic components in air, you have to capture these VOC in some way. Discover here the different ways in which this is possible.

What do I want to sample?

A sample must of course be available to determine volatile organic compounds (VOC). This is usually in gaseous form, with an air sample being the simplest form. And this can be taken quite literally as a bag of air. But it can also be done using adsorption cartridges or even canisters. If you are looking at a medium other than gas, a suitable sample preparation is required, so that the VOC to be measured can be converted into the correct form.

Air can be sampled with canisters, sampling bags or adsorption tubes.

Why do I want to take a sample?

The choice of sampling method also depends on the VOC to be analysed. The specific properties of the materials used, such as adsorption cartridges or canisters, make them more or less suitable for the analysis of specific VOC.
