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.

Seeking an Elegant, Affordable Solution to Contamination

Dr. Charley Liberko of Cornell College's Department of Chemistry has an idea he's working to bring to fruition. “Imagine a remote village in an underdeveloped country whose only source of water is a stream contaminated with toxic levels of metal ions such as cadmium and nickel,” states Dr. Liberko. “The villagers take locally available woody plant material, soak it in potash, and heat it up for several days until the wood partially decomposes. They then filter their water through this material to remove the metal ions. When they are done with it, they put the material in a clay pot and heat it up even hotter until the organic matter decomposes completely, leaving the metal ion salts as a residue, safely in the clay pot.

New Fish Lab Offers Unique Opportunities

Sometimes scientists have to make an extraordinary effort to study the questions that concern them. In fact, they may even need to design and build labs to their specifications. This was the case with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln's (UNL’s) Fish Conservation Behavior and Physiology Lab , which serves as a locus for research on water management best practices based on fish physiology—work conducted by up and coming scientists as well as more established researchers. Dr. Jamilynn Poletto spoke to EM about how the lab was built and the work that is happening there. Building a customized solution “My problem was that in the lab we get city water from Lincoln, and any water from any city in the country has chlorine and chloramine in it,” explains Dr.
