A compact, robust and remotely-controlled surface sampling system

Autonomous and communicating, the RS-14V sampler collects 14 samples of 250 ml thanks to an internal mini vacuum pump, in harsh environments and under the most unforgiving weather conditions. Highly resistant to impacts, it can be used near a shoreline, attached to a buoy in a pond or deployed from a vessel.

A unique sampling path and a one-way check valve ensure consistent and uncontamined sampling every time. Validated by independent laboratories, samples taken with RS-14V are equivalent to the standardized manual sampling performed by a trained technician.

The RS-14V sampler can be:

  • Activated on demand from a cell phone through a simple SMS.
  • Easily pre-programmed from a mobile phone (SMS) or a computer USB port.
  • Automatically triggered with external sensors (optional).

Because of its exceptional battery life, it can be deployed for long periods of time (from 6 weeks to 6 months).


The RS-14V sampler is a reliable sampling tool for the most diverse applications:

  • Pollution and spill monitoring
  • Recreational water quality monitoring
  • Monitoring of wastewater effluents, storm sampling, tidal events
  • Source water testing
  • Phytoplankton blooms monitoring
  • Microbiological research
  • Ocean sciences and limnology research.
