YSI’s ProSample portable samplers feature a proprietary peristaltic pump for highly accurate sampling in applications such as surface water, stormwater, and wastewater.
ProSample for use in COVID RNA Testing
Samples are collected from the wastewater network in the morning and evening during peak hours. The ProSample units are located adjacent to individual buildings such as apartment complexes whereby sample collection from the wastewater network is representative of the community inside the complex. Once samples are collected they are taken to the laboratory for sample analysis and detection of COVID RNA.
Conducting this efficient sampling solution at a sewer node allows for the connection of COVID to an individual building. Alternatively, testing can eliminate a single building for the presence of COVID and direct efforts elsewhere.
The ProSample series has extremely high volume accuracy to keep your facility in compliance. The ProSample series is most commonly used in stormwater and storm event sampling, influent and effluent wastewater treatment, collection systems for industrial pre-treatment and any time based sampling requirements. The ProSample series provides a unique combination of design and technology.
The proprietary peristaltic pump supplied with the ProSample series, allows for accurate sampling volumes, by using a two sensor design versus the more common one sensor design of most buy-out peristaltic pumps. The samplers come with two sets of tubing, one for operation and one as a spare as standard. The spring loaded roller bearings of the pump provide longer tube life, up to 20% longer than the competition.
Once taking samples and collecting data, the data log is easily recovered using a USB which than can be loaded into a PC. The ProSample series does not require a lap top to be brought to the sampler. The ProSample series has non-volatile data memory for up to 5 years, so you never have to worry your data is unable to be recovered if power is lost.
