Exposmeter - Model EAL-Tox - Lipophilic Toxicity Air Sampler

EWL, EWL-15, EAL and EGL series samplers are packed by one in air tight cans. Please read handling instruction below.

Features

  • A time-integrated monitoring tool for sampling bioavailable contaminants in the aquatic environment
  • Detects hotspots, sources, fate and transport of contaminants, as well as their presence and environmental effects
  • Environmental conditions are not a barrier to use EWL serie samplers. It was used all over the world from Antarctica till Central America, from sampling of drinking water till industrial and municipal waste water
  • The most sensitive technique that could replace bioindicators
  • EWL series samplers mimics the respiratory exposure of aquatic organisms
  • The EWLTox (Exposmeter Lipophilic Toxicity for water) enables in situ concentration of trace organic contaminant mixtures for toxicity assessment and toxicity identification evaluation (TIE) studies

Economy. No additional electrical equipment needed for sampling. EWL series samplers offers full-shift to 30-day sampling; you only need one sampler for a TWA sample, and one sampler means only one analysis.

Efficiency. No need to make multiple worksite visits to change sampling media; 30-day sampling can be done with just ONE sampler.

The cost, ease of usage, sensitivity, reproducibility, and application to water concentrations it makes EWL series samplers the best available passive environmental sampler.

EWL series samplers are the only demonstrated in situ passive monitoring approach for sampling sub-part-per-quadrillion levels of dissolved residues such as dioxins.

Common Toxins found with EWL series samplers

The compounds listed below are the example of common contaminants sampled by EWL series samplers. Many other hydrophobic substances with a -log Kow greater than 3.0 can be sequestered in triolein and ultimately analyzed.

  • Name Possible Source
  • PAH Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Combustion by-product
  • OC, OrganoChlorides Pesticide
  • PCB, Polychlorinated Biphenyls Industrial and electrical
  • Pyrethroids Insecticide
  • Dioxins Combustion, industrial
  • Furans Industrial by-product
  • Nonyl Phenols Industrial
  • Alkylated Selenide Fossil fuels
  • Oil C8 - C36 Industrail, fossil fuel
  • TBTs Ships

Examples of toxicity tests:

Vibrio fischeri, acute toxicity test with cladophora Daphnia pulex , test with fish rainbow trout Oncorhynchus, mykiss and test of inhibition of algal growth of Scenedesmus subspicatus and/or Selenastrum capricornutum

For the purposes of monitoring Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) EWL series samplers can be included in monitoring programs to reveal environmental contamination and to investigate the bioavailability of contaminants from environmental media.

  1. EWL series samplers remains in-situ, upwardly concentrating ambient contaminants over a period of time, typically around 30 days. This means that the samplers are more likely to identify an episodic contamination event during the period of exposure
  2. EWL series samplers normally concentrates enough analyte for chemists to positively identify contaminants using an array of mass spectrometry techniques. This is not always possible using existing practices
  3. Ultra trace, yet environmentally significant contaminants can be identified (and in many cases quantified) using passive sampling devices. Lower sampling detection limits help ecotoxicologists evaluate the impact of trace-level contaminants on the ecosystem
  4. Sampling using EWL series samplers is the method of screening for environmental toxicity integrating biologically and chemical based techniques for early warning and ecosystem health assessment purposes. more standardized comparison between sites in widely different locations compare with living bioindicators, able to provide invaluable information in very polluted environments where bioindicator organisms would not survive

SPMD passive sampling technology have been used by many governmental agencies around the globe (e.g., UK EPA, Swedish EPA, Chzeck EPA, Australia EPA, US EPA, USGS) for the monitoring of water-soluble organic contaminants. The US EPA has been instrumental in developing the SPMD as an airborne contamination monitor. The Environmental Agency of England and Wales has adopted the SPMDs as part of their monitoring programs. The National Laboratory Service of the UK Environment Agency has been awarded accreditation for analysis of SPMD devices to the ISO17025 standard by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). The Institute of Public Health in the Czech Republic use EWL as a standard method. SPMD is being considered by the European Union as a standard method for dissolved phase chemicals.
