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.

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.
