Taking the right sample in the right way is a prerequisite to obtaining accurate and reliable results. In the case of water and moisture content determinations, avoiding water absorption from atmospheric moisture, sampling tools or sample vials and vessels is a paramount sampling objective.

Different sampling techniques have been developed to accommodate the varying nature of samples since the first Karl Fischer titrations were carried out in 1935.
