The SP250 quick release water sampler is ideal for sample removal from wastewater, shallow wells and surface water, including lakes, ponds, and holding pools. The water sampler is lightweight, rugged, easy to use, weather resistant, and requires minimal maintenance. The peristaltic pump is designed to take a manual sample and has the ability to back flush the sample hose once you are finished taking the sample.
The water sampler operates using an external 12 volt DC power source that can supply at least 2 A continuous. The variable speed motor is reversible and can draw water samples at a wide range of speed. A power cord, 10 ft (3.05 m) long, is included with each quick release water sampler. The power cord is fitted with alligator clips for easy connection to most 12-volt DC batteries, including car batteries or small 12V, 5 AH gel cells.
To provide high sample integrity, the water sample only contacts the norprene and polyethylene tubing. The tubing is easily cleaned or replaced. The Masterflex easy load design and adjustable tubing retention system allow for multiple tubing sizes and for changing the tubing without removing the pump head from the drive. To avoid cross contamination or lengthy decontamination procedures simply change the inexpensive tubing between samples.

Recent research from a University of Guelph (U of G) team reveals that warmer temperatures caused by climate change are forcing species to alter their behavior, causing food webs in Ontario lakes to transform. As temperatures warm, larger species hunt new prey in deeper waters, changing the ways nutrients and energy flow in lakes and triggering a “rewiring” of food webs.
Dr. Timothy Bartley , study lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the U of G's Department of Integrative Biology , spoke to EM about the work .
“I got started on this when I first began graduate school and joined an ongoing project, which was a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ,” explains Dr. Bartley.Read More
Some of the most interesting data in the world of river and stream monitoring come at times when it's practically impossible to capture—during extreme weather events, for example. Timing alone makes capturing unusual events a challenge, and these kinds of issues have prompted researchers to use classic monitoring data along with new technologies to develop and improve hydraulic modeling for estimating river flows.
Steven Lyon , a Conservation Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, Professor at Stockholm University and Associate Professor at The Ohio State University, spoke with EM about the research .Read More
Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point: Monitoring New York’s Largest Interior Lake for Sixty Years
Lars Rudstam, Professor of Aquatic Science at Cornell and Director of the Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point, says that he has long held an interest in lakes in general, so naturally the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater lake system in the world, have held a fascination for him for many years. He also works on Oneida Lake, the largest lake wholly inside New York. Oneida Lake waters, traveling from the Lake to the Oneida River, then to the Oswego River, ultimately flow into Lake Ontario. “In addition to lakes in general and the Great Lakes, I have been especially interested in the impressive data series that has been collected for Oneida Lake,” Rudstam notes.Read More
