International Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium

  • Dates:
    Sep 11
    Sep 13, 2019
  • Location: Boston, OH, U.S.
  • Address: Northeastern University

The 11th International Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium (IPSW 2019) will cover the use of the latest techniques for passive sampling of undesirable substances, as well as offer various educational activities.

Traditional passive samplers do not work for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. That's why Battelle has been working on an alternative technology

Our PFAS Insight™ passive sampler technology consists of a polymeric sorbent material suitable for neutral and ionic PFAS. Laboratory testing has demonstrated relatively fast uptake of PFAS chemicals, with ≤ 1 week of equilibration times for most analytes. Different geometries of the passive sampler hardware were designed to fit various application scenarios, including groundwater monitoring wells and surface water.

Battelle Research Scientist Eliza Kaltenberg will be presenting on this topic during IPSW 2019.
