Growing concerns over the harmful effects of exposure to low levels of hazardous air pollutants have led to increasingly demanding volatile organic compound (VOC) monitoring programs worldwide. As a result, regulations are evolving, and now require laboratories to monitor more compounds, more frequently, and to detect ever-lower levels in ambient air.

The groups of compounds contributing to ‘air pollution’ are as many and varied as their sources. Selection and implementation of the optimum sampling and analysis techniques can, therefore, greatly simplify workflows and boost productivity.

Join us for a step-by-step journey through the whole process...

What are VOCs and Why Measure Them?
In this talk we look at what pollution is and why it is important to understand it, how it is connected to health issues and climate change, and how VOCs can be measured. One technique examined in detail is thermal desorption, and the various sampling methods for this type of analysis are introduced.

Choosing the Best Air Sampling Technique for Your Application
Here we look at the considerations that should be made when choosing a particular sampling technique for air toxics analysis. These include the types of compounds you may be looking at, where will you be sampling, what structure will your sampling campaign take, and standard method requirements.

A Guide to Canister Sampling
In this presentation, we'll take an in-depth look at canister sampling, including common canister applications, choosing a canister, choosing your sampling method, preparing your canister for sampling, and instrumentation required. A series of applications will be presented and best practice discussed to ensure optimal results.

Summary & Questions
Here we provide an overview of the key takeaway messages from the above presentations and answer a series of user questions.

By viewing these presentations you will learn ...

  • How to choose the best sampling technique for your application
  • What you will need for each stage of a canister sampling cycle
  • How to get the most out of your air analysis instruments.

Why should you view them?

The techniques available for measuring VOCs in air are wide-ranging, and choosing the most appropriate method for your needs can be complicated. In this webinar we will:

  • Guide you through selecting the best technique for your application
  • Take a close look at each stage of a canister sampling and analysis cycle, and explain what is needed and how each stage works
  • Present example methods and applications that can be performed with the presented instruments and accessories.
