The MerPAS® Passive Air Sampler is the newest Tekran® sampling solution developed to provide our customers a simple device for measuring mercury in a wide range of environments. The sampler can be configured to sample either background ambient air or highly-contaminated industrial locations. Since collection is passive, MerPAS® sampling is completely power-free allowing easy deployment in a wide array of locations.
Based on the design developed by researchers at the University of Toronto, the MerPAS® sampler is the perfect sampling solution for locations not requiring high-resolution data, or for locations where greater spatial coverage is needed to complement a single location high resolution mercury monitor. After collection, the MerPAS® sampler is analyzed in a laboratory for Hg content using thermal or wet chemical techniques. For more information or for assistance with analysis of MerPAS® samples, contact us at our designated MerPAS@tekran.com email address.
