IFV Pro Sampler - New!


Orderable Items The IFV Pro Sampler collects mixed-phase (aerosol and vapor) contaminants such as pesticides, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), inorganic acids, and explosives. The IFV Pro simultaneously collects the aerosol phase on a 25-mm filter and the vapor phase in an 8 x 110-mm sorbent tube at a flow rate of 1 L/min. Sampler includes sampling head, protective tube cover, cassette cap, and cassette transport container; requires 25-mm filter and 8 x 110-mm sorbent tube.



  • Simultaneously samples aerosol and vapor phases
    • Collects aerosol phase on 25-mm filter and vapor phase in 8 x 110-mm sorbent tube
    • See Selection Guide for applications and media

  • IOM-style inlet sized for 1 L/min flow for true inhalable sampling

  • Recommended 1 L/min flow rate allows for effective collection of both contaminant phases, provides for lower limits of detection

  • Costs less than competing models

ACGIH IFV Designation

ACGIH has assigned a TLV with Inhalable Fraction and Vapor (IFV) designation to over 50 compounds that exert sufficient vapor pressure such that the contaminant may be present in both particle and vapor phases, with each phase contributing a significant portion of the dose. IFV Pro allows for efficient sampling of compounds with this designation (see table below) or compounds found in mixed phases due to work activities or processes.

SKC introduces the IFV Pro Sampler for collecting mixed-phase contaminants such as pesticides, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), inorganic acids, and explosives. Sampling mixed-phase contaminants is challenging because the vapor and aerosol distribution is constantly changing. IFV Pro overcomes the technical issues of competing models with its IOM-style inlet for true inhalable sampling, use of a 25-mm filter (instead of 13-mm filter) for lower back pressure, and use at 1 L/min to provide lower limits of detection.

Sampling Mixed-phase Contaminants Using IFV Pro
  1. Aerosol phase — Place cassette loaded with 25-mm filter in sampling head.

  2. Vapor phase — Insert opened sorbent tube into tube holder on sampling head.

  3. Simultaneous sampling — Attach tubing to sorbent tube, put protective tube cover in place, attach tubing to sample pump, and sample!
