The complete Rhizon soil moisture sampler system supplies a range of miniature soil moisture samplers. The Rhizon samplers are used for repeated and reliable sampling of all dissolved components in the soil solution.
This unique sampler is made of porous plastic material (PES) and has standard 0.15-micron pores. The sampler is reinforced with wire and dissolved organic and inorganic matter will not be absorbed on the soil moisture sampler. A horizontal placement in moist soil is preferred. Water acts as a lubricant during inserting. Due to the minimal disturbance the soil will quickly settle, resulting in a good sampler-soil contact. Optional is co-extruded tubing (PE inside / PVC outside) 1 millimetre internal diameter, Luer-connectors and protective caps. This sampler type has a length of 9 centimetres and a diameter of 4.5 millimetres. For installation at greater depths, a standard sampler with PVC extension pipe can be used.
This set is ideal for studies on undisturbed soil columns and pots with plants, the standard Rhizon soil moisture samplers can be inserted through the wall. A sample is obtained by placing the sampler under vacuum, by using a vacuum tube or a syringe. During sampling, the pH value of the soil is not affected. The standard set can be extended with various accessories.
