Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Graco Inc., announces the acquisition of the Snap Sampler passive ground water sampling technology from ProHydro, Inc. The Snap Sampler system is uniquely designed to provide high sampling accuracy while reducing sampling program costs.

The Snap Sampler system (US Patent 7,178,415), winner of the US’ National Ground Water Association’s prestigious Equipment Design Award for safety, efficiency and ease of operation, employs a unique double-ended bottle design with “snap” sealing caps that captures a sample under in-situ conditions using a simple mechanical or pneumatic trigger at the surface. The integrity of the sample is maintained all the way through analysis at the laboratory without exposure to air or potential contaminants. Samples are representative of ground water chemistry using a simple passive sampling technique, eliminating well purging labor and purge water management.

“QED is pleased to be able to offer the Snap Sampler technology to our customers,” says David Kaminski, Senior Vice President of QED and Product Manager for its full line of Ground Water and Soil Sampling products. “The Snap Sampler provides the highest quality passive samples for the widest range of applications while saving valuable field time. It’s the best fit with our proven Well Wizard®and Sample Pro®low-flow sampling bladder pump systems that have been used by our customers for over 35 years.”

Sanford “Sandy” Britt, owner of ProHydro, Inc., and inventor of the Snap Sampler technology, is excited about bringing the Snap Sampler products to QED. “I think that existing Snap Sampler customers will benefit greatly from QED’s wide range of solutions, resources and strong customer service reputation. I’m looking forward to working with the QED team and presenting the Snap Sampler technology to QED’s customer base of ground water professionals.”
