How Are Lab Samplers Used ?
Lab samplers are often used in the laboratory or in the wider industrial workplace as part of quality control or quality assurance of incoming raw materials or outgoing finished product. They are also used in environmental monitoring of soil or water. They are designed and manufactured to enable efficient and safe sampling, and to minimise the risk of cross-contamination during the whole process.
Samplers are often constructed to ensure compliance with GLP (Good Laboratory Practice), GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) or other procedural guidelines. Samplers are typically made of plastics such as HDPE or polypropylene for disposability and reduced risk of cross-contamination. Many are supplied sterile. Samplers are also manufactured from stainless steel or aluminium for strength, re-usability and durability.
There are many types of sampler, including:
- General purpose laboratory utensils such as spoons, scoops and shovels
- Sterile disposable samplers for cleanrooms and other controlled environments, often with lids to minimise contamination
- Industrial samplers for use with bulk materials such as granules or powders from sacks, bags or silos
- Specialised core samplers for harder or caked materials, or single-point samplers to take samples at specified locations from within a bulk source
- Liquid samplers and dip samplers
- Food samplersmade especially for foodstuff contact
- Other specialised environmental samplers for soil or water
