Experimental setup. The experimental setup allows for easily introducing the sorbent tubes into the sample loop without the need to open the growth chambers. A miniature pump draws the headspace from the chambers into the sorbent tube. The sample loop continues to a rotameter, where airflow is measured and is then transferred back into the growth chambers, thus providing a completely enclosed sample trajectory.
