The Phytoplankton Sampler (PPS) is an autonomous particulate sampler that filters up to 24 individual water samples through 47mm filters. Samples are collected in user-defined time series to collect trace metals, phytoplankton and suspended particles. The patented multi-port valve isolates individual samples and distributes water directly to the filter before passing through a pump.
