Ethylene Oxide Passive Samplers

Ethylene oxide is widely used to sterilise medical equipment and supplies. Exposure health effects can range from respiratory irritation to cancer and reproductive/mutagenic effects. SKC has scientifically validated the sampling rate of the 575 Series passive samplers along with other critical sampling parameters to meet OSHA/ASTM/ANSI requirements.

Ethylene Oxide Passive Sampler
  • Highly accurate and reliable
    • Proven performers in the laboratory and in the field
    • Fully validated to ANSI/ISEA 104-1998 Standard
  • Save time and money
  • Uses same sorbent as active OSHA Method 1010
  • Economical solvent desorption and GC analysis
  • Ideal for hospitals, veterinary clinics and sterile instrument manufacturers
  • Superior collection efficiency
    • SKC sorbents have a larger surface area for higher capacities
    • Samplers contain >300 mg of sorbent — much more than other brands
  • Sampling flexibility - Validated for short-term and 8-hour sampling
  • Proven results - extensively tested and documented
  • So easy to use - No sampling pump or training required
