Disclosed is a fluid sampling apparatus (12). The apparatus has a sample inlet port (14) in communication with a fluid space (10) containing the fluid to be sampled. An analysis port (16) is provided for communication with an analysis device such as a mass spectrometer. A dilution gas injection port (22) is provided to dilute fluid is sampled from the fluid space via the sample inlet port. The diluted sample fluid is then conducted to the analysis port. The sampling apparatus is intended particularly for use in analysing biomass pyrolysis processes.
