Work out what you need and calculate system costs
One of the benefits of Chemcatcher® is that it is highly versatile. Depending on the materials chosen for the receiving phase and the membrane selected, it can be adapted to detect various types of water contaminants – from trace metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and pesticides to pharmaceutical and personal care residues.
Use the tables on our Systems Requirements page to determine the set up required for the particular compounds you are seeking to detect. Then use the signup at the bottom of that page to request pricing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many detector units do I need?
A: Each assessment requires the Chemcatcher® deployment unit to be fitted with 3 detectors (i.e. the housing plus disk and membrane). You will also need a field blank detector per site and 1 x fabrication blank detector per assessment. Therefore a total of 5 detector units are required. (However, if a number of sites are being monitored at the same time, one set of blanks (i.e. 1 x fabrication blank and 1 x field blank) is sufficient.
Q: Are Empore™ and Attract™ disks interchangeable
The results of comparative studies between AttractSPE™ disks chelating and 3M Empore™ disks for metals, as provided by Affinisep, the supplier of Attract™ disks, are available here.
Q: How long do I need to deploy Chemcatcher®?
A: The usual deployment period is for two weeks. For metals and nutrients, up to a week may be sufficient- historical data of concentrations in the area would be helpful.
Q: Can I prepare the system? Is a SOP required?
A: We provide a free of charge SOP, outlining details of preparation, activation, deployment and retrieval.
If required, we can also provide a half a day or a full day of training, at an additional cost.
Q: Is shipping included in the cost?
A: Shipping is quoted for on an order-by-order basis, depending on the weight of the order and the destination. An exact address is required for an accurate quote. Contact name, contact number and address details are needed for the shipping.
Q: How long will it be before I receive my order?
A: Our standard turn-around time from receipt of your order is 7-10 days – once all items are in stock. Once dispatched, the length of time for shipping depends on the final destination and customs.
