A large range of passive samplers to collect very wide families of natural or synthetic molecules on surface water or on groundwater are available :
- Passive samplers based on SPE disks are designed to provide TWA concentration of polar or non polar organic compounds as well as metals during the sampling period. This passive sampler is very simple of use to extract the contaminants.
- The Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Sampler (POCIS) is designed to provide the time weighted average (TWA) concentration of hydrophilic organic chemicals (pesticides, drug residues, Glyphosate & AMPA, EDCs…) during the sampling period. POCIS can be supplied with or without Performance Reference Compound (PRC). Historically developed for polar compounds, some applications have been developped for non polar compounds such as Perfluorinated compounds (PFAS) thanks to the right combination of sorbent/membranes.
- Silicone rubbers are the convenient tools for the uptake of non-polar contaminants such as PAHs or PCBs.
- Solid phase adsorption toxin tracking (SPATT) is a new monitoring tool that simulates the biotoxin contamination of filter feeding bivalves.
Disks - based passive samplers

Ease to use and handle
Wide collection of SPE disks: HLB, RPS, C18, SAX, SCX, Chelating…
Refill kits to recycle the housing
Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Sampler (POCIS) are very common and useful passive samplers for monitoring polar organic chemicals in several aquatic environments such as freshwater, groundwater, seawater, etc…
This Integrative sampling method can adsorb an extensive range of contaminants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), pesticides including glyphosate, endocrine disruptors, fragrances, fire retardants, perfluorinated compounds, plasticizers, and their degradation products.
Passive Samplers for groundwater
Passive sampling in groundwater requires change of the shape of these tools due to their introduction in narrow wells.
These passive samplers are available for POCIS or disks passive samplers for the determination of organic molecules such as Pharmaceutical, Pesticides, Herbicides, Endocrine disruptors, Glyphosate & AMPA, Perfluorinated compounds (PFAS)
AFFINIMIP® SPATT Biotoxins
For the uptake of biotoxins from microalgaes
A very powerful tool for the monitoring of non-polar contaminants such as PAHs, PCBs or hydrophobic pesticides.
Different shapes available
Several accessories are required for the use of passive samplers on the field, hold them and to protect them.
