ExposMeter AB is an R&D company whose main activities are producing and supplying products and services for passive sampling. The idea with passive sampling is that the average concentration of pollutants in water or air is sampled without any mechanical tools or electricity. Typically a three-week period is continuously sampled and the time-weighted average concentration is calculated. In this manner all fluctuations created by process parameters, climate, water change, water direction etc are taken into account.
The samplers have successfully been used in many different sampling scenarios all over the globe. Target compounds can be technical chemicals as PCB, Dioxins, oils, pesticides, modern water-soluble pesticides, volatile organic compounds as well as illegal drugs, medical and veterinary drugs, antibiotics and metals, mercury, arsenic and N, P, K etc.
Other services offered by the company include design of investigations strategies, chemical analysis of pollutants, data interpretation etc. During the last 20 years ExposMeter AB has been involved in both the invention of the samplers as well as in hundreds of investigations all over the world. The samplers are based on the SPMD, POCIS, DGT and other technologies.
