Periphyton Sampler

Periphyton are microorganisms growing on submerged surfaces and are a good indication of comparative water quality. However, they can be difficult to collect due to the lack of natural substrates. We’re proud to state that this floating artificial substrate sampler specifically for the EPA. When placed at any depth in a stream, reservoir or lake and secured with a line and anchor (not included), algae grows on the glass slides. Remove the slides after 2 weeks and examine the algae, zebra mussels and other growth under a microscope for identification and counting.

• Self-righting yet rugged. Remains in position due to the current deflector which resists action of waves
• Low profile
• Stainless steel wire frame holds slide tray. Fastens at three points for secure anchorage.
• Two floats attach to the ends of the frame and are held by locking rings so the sampler can float.
• One-piece plastic slide tray holds 16 glass microscope slides that rest just below the surface: 25 x 76 mm (1 x 3”) Important! 25 x 75 mm slides are too small and will not work.
• Two locking plates on each tray allow loading in the lab, then transporting. Plates snap in and out of the frame without tools.
• Overall dimensions: 12 x 8 x 6-1/2”
• Meets EPA recommendations (Version # 2, Ohio)
