The Dräger probe in the measurement set to the geochemical research of the soil gases composition is inconvenient to use. It's heavy, which are reąuired to operate at least two people. Cumbersome and time-consuming is to place it into the soil by impact method, and often there is fail to reach the planned measurement depth. For this reason, there was designed and made the new modified Dräger probe. The new probe has significantly lower mass and outer diameter. In principle it should be possible to introduce it into the soil by pushing, which will greatly facilitate and accelerate conducting the geochemical research of the soil gases composition.In the autumn of 2014 has been tested the modified Drager probe. The purpose of this study is to assess it suitability to conduct the geochemical research of the soil gases composition. In total there were performed 374 measurements of the soil gases composition at different depths in the 247 measurement points. In 99 cases (26.5%) there was failed to perform the measurement because the soil gases flow rate through the meter was too little. Pulling probe usually allowed to perform the research - in only 6 measurement points (2.4%), it was impossible. The average depth of the measurement point is equal to 0.78 m.
