Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Are the sampling bottles autoclavable?
The bottles are made from a food-grade, high-density polyethylene with a vinyl lined cap to ensure a tight fit. However, they are not sterile nor autoclavable. The Nasco swing sampler can be used with other bottles to fit your needs.
What does autoclavable mean?
If an object is autoclavable, it means that the it can withstand the high pressure and temperature produced in an autoclave. An autoclave is used to sterilize equipment by subjecting it a high pressure steam (15-30 psi and 121-134 degrees Celsius) for 10-20 minutes. The exact pressure/temperature/time required depends on the item being sterilized. The bottle included with the Nasco Swing Sampler is not autoclavable.
Do you sell just the bottle swing/holder with out the pole?
Yes, we do carry the plastic clamps (part #W1220) and the bottles (part #W1244) separately. They can be found under the Accessories tab.
Will the nasco telescoping swing sampler hold a standard 1L glass amber bottle?
The Nasco swing sampler can be used with any bottle that fits inside the adjustable locking ring. The ring has an adjustable internal diameter of 3 7/8 inches to 4 inches. If the bottle doesn't fit within these diameters, you may be able to attach it to the sampler with alterative fasteners of your choice.

Thousands of Mount Everest hikers add to area’s groundwater contamination

Nepal’s Mount Everest is a wonder to behold. Sitting at more than 29,000 feet, many attempt to summit it each year. And though some climbers don’t make it to the top, all of them have an effect on the mountain’s ecosystem. What’s more, say scientists at Ball State University, the quantities of trash and human waste they leave behind are having disgusting effects on water quality downstream. At the bottom of Mount Everest, there are Sherpa communities too poor to afford water treatment plants and their members often drink untreated water straight off the mountain. “You can find almost every kind of waste. Everything from water bottles, batteries, cans, toilet paper,” said Kirsten Nicholson, professor of geological sciences at Ball State.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
