    • Attach a small diaphragm pump to the module's gas outlet (exhaust).

    • Connect the exhaust of the diaphragm pump to a flowmeter. The flow should read about 2.O LPM.

    • Disconnect the sample line from the module's inlet port and insert a luer cap.

    • You should see the flowmeter drop to zero. If it doesn’t, there’s a leak somewhere.

    • If you find the module has a leak, contact Technical Support.
