SVOC Analysis

Semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) cannot be collected in a SUMMA canister because their vapor pressure is low and they attach themselves to the canister surfaces by a undefined mechanism.

SVOC's in ambient and indoor air samples are collected on a sorbent cartridge made of polyethylene foam (PUF) or a combination of PUF and XAD-2 resin. 

  • PUF - TO-4 and TO-10
  • PUF/XAD-2 - TO-13

SVOC's in source samples are collected on XAD-2 Cartridges.
