What is CFIS?

CFIS is a sampling device for the control of pollution in water, with no membrane, is capable to calculating Time Weighted Average concentration monitoring (TWA), with validated sampling rate per unit time, independent from in-field turbulences. The device is based in the most advanced technology for extraction of pollutants in water, SPE and SBSE, which facilitates the analysis of the samples following techniques and protocols.
