AT THE FOREFRONT OF PASSIVE WATER SAMPLING
An important development in water sampling in recent years has been the evolution of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) passive samplers.
Passive sampling allows for the measurement of ultra-low concentrations of contaminants in water samples. Many of Maxxam’s customers see the benefits of the technology, in particular for risk assessments, when low concentrations as well as average concentrations over a period of time are highly relevant or where sediments confound conventional analysis.
Maxxam has been collaborating with industry, government agencies, academic institutions and clients on a number of related projects.
To date, passive water sampling is still an emergent technology in Canada, and Maxxam’s Research & Development team is working in the same field as leading researchers around the world to make the technology available to our customers.
