Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Sampler (POCIS)

PSDs

What are POCIS?

See image above – right hand side canister

  • – POCIS sequesters primarily hydrophilic/polar type substances. Substances with a log Kow< 4
  • – Each POCIS disk consists of a microporous polyethersulfone membrane encasing various solid phase sorbents or mixtures of sorbents
  • – Different sorbents can be used for different classes of pollutants
  • – The POCIS holder housed within the NLS passive sampler accommodates three disks
