What is in your air? A question that Bertin Technologies (France) can now answer with the microbial air sampler Coriolisμ.

This system relies on a patented technology, consisting in cyclone type operation to concentrate airborne biological particles into a liquid media. This portable air sampler may be used in any place thanks to the battery.

It has been validated for indoor and outdoor air monitoring and can collect airborne pollens, bacteria, spores, molds, and even airborne viruses…

A high air flow rate up to 300L/min can be performed to collect a representative sample and improve the probability to detect a large panel of micro-organisms even at a low concentration in the air like in clean rooms
environment. According to ISO 14698 recommendations, biological and physical efficiency of the technology have been validated for the collection of bioparticle sizes upper than 0,5 μm (d50 below 0.5μm).

The liquid sample delivered gives access to cultivable, viable and non cultivable flora thanks to its compatibility with the whole range of microbiological analysis including not only microbiology, but also immuno-assays, PCR, flow cytometry... Beyond impaction limits, the use of Rapid Microbiology Methods thus leads to specific and reliable results in a few hours response time.

Bertin Technologies has launched a Coriolis dedicated website to illustrate the technology, the applications and the air sampler products: www.coriolisairsampler.com
