MicroRhizons

MicroRhizons: pore water sampling in RhizonBox and agar tests

MicroRhizons are mainly used in RhizonBox and agar tests. They consist of two parts: a porous part of 8 mm with an outer diameter of 1 mm, and PEEK tubing with a connector fit to a syringe. The mean pore size of the porous part is 0.15 µm, hence filtering the samples before analyzing is unnecessary. The yield of MicroRhizons is up to 2 ml.
As the tubing of MicroRhizons consists of PEEK and a special glue, it is possible to steamsterilize them. 

MicroRhizons - several types

Available MicroRhizons

MicroRhizon samplers have an exposed porous part of 8 mm with an outer diameter of 1 mm, and they are glued on 12 cm PEEK tubing 0.6*0.4 mm. The PEEK tubing has a 0.1 mm hole about 3 mm from top for sampling. All Rhizon samplers are sold in sets of 10.
