Folsom Plankton Splitter

Recommended in Standard Methods

This well-known device for sub-sampling by splitting was developed by Dr. Folsom of the Scripps Institute. It works by placing a measured volume of sample in the undivided section of the drum. Rotate the drum 120° to stir and divide with a separating blade. The contents of one tray may be returned to the drum for further subdividing. Split alcohol based samples quickly because the drum is not alcohol-resistant. Do not use chemicals such as acetone and ketone.

Wash with mild soap and soft water, rinse with distilled water before drying.
