Retracting Sampling Heads
Our retracting sampling heads are made of corrosion-resistant materials, and spring-loaded to extend the sampling rods under centrifugal force during sampling and retract them for protection while the sampler is at rest. Fits "Type-I" rods.
Injection-molded clear plastic rods, 1.59mm x 1.59mm x 32mm. These "Type-I" rods have a small nub that can be used
as a reference point to determine the collection side of the sampling rod. Rods are available ungreased in packages of
100, or pre-greased in larger quantities.
(Note - pre-greased rods require the purchase or supply of a storage
tray for shipping)
|Ungreased Rods - 100: ||$90.00 |
|Pre-greased Rods - each: ||$1.20 |
|Pre-greased Rods - 420: |
Sampling Rods Storage Tray
Machined from one-quarter-inch thick Lexan, these trays are durable, stackable, and hold up to 420 "Type-I" rods
(12 rows by 35 columns)
Sampling Rod Slide
Microscope slide used for mounting sampling rods for analysis, sometimes referred to as a microscope stage adaptor. This clear plastic slide is machined with two polished grooves so that up to two "Type-I" rods (1.59mm width) can be analyzed at a time. 76mm x 35mm x 3mm.
An aqueous mountant containing Basic Fuschin, which colours pollen to aid in identification during microscopic analysis. 50mL bottle.
NOVAGARD G697 Silicone Compound
This silicone grease is highly recommended for use as the embedding medium on sampling rods. 5.3oz tube.
