The Pop-up Berlese Funnel is an excellent alternative to the more traditional design and is particularly useful for field sampling and use at remote sites. When packed into the carry bag it measures 16cm diameter x 8cm deep and weighs only 310g, meaning that several can easily be packed and carried together.
The Pop-up Berlese Funnel consists of a black nylon funnel which is held open by a foldable metal ring. Inside the funnel is a black polyester mesh gauze (6mm mesh) onto which the soil/leaf litter is placed. The top compartment of the Berlese funnel is made from white nylon netting which permits light to enter and allows moisture to evaporate. At the base of the funnel is a connector which allows the 50ml collecting tube to be quickly attached and removed.
