OSHA Versatile Sampler (OVS) Tubes


Orderable Items Uniquely constructed and versatile SKC OVS tubes combine sorbent and filter into one glass tube to trap aerosols and vapors simultaneously and overcome inconveniences of earlier methods. SKC OVS Tubes meet the specifications of several OSHA, NIOSH, and non-agency methods for sampling pesticides, explosives, alcohols, and biocides.
Require an OVS Tube Holder



  • Sorbent and filter combined in one tube for NIOSH and OSHA methods

  • Collect aerosols and vapors simultaneously

  • Available with a variety of sorbents

  • Low backgrounds ensure sample reliability

  • Meet OSHA and NIOSH method specifications

  • Easy-off hat caps

OVS Tube with Cal louts

OSHA Versatile Sampler
OSHA originally designed OSHA Versatile Sampler (OVS) Tubes to overcome the inconveniences of earlier methods. OVS Tubes contain a filter to trap aerosols and a two-section sorbent bed to adsorb vapors in one specially constructed glass tube. Only cleaned and verified materials are used in OVS Tubes to ensure low background interference. A flow rate of 1 L/min provided by a personal sample pump is typically used to obtain volumes ranging from 60 to 480 liters. Samples are solvent extracted and analyzed by GC or HPLC with detector

For mixed-phase sampling using a true inhalable sampler that meets ISO 7708/CEN, see IFV Pro
