Bertin Instruments – Coriolis® biological air sampler

Coriolis µ, portable air sampler, is dedicated to air quality control and air quality monitoring in environmental and pollution research, pharmaceutical, food and veterinary industries, biomedical and health environment.

 

Description

Coriolis µ is an innovative biological air sampler for bio-contamination assessment, mainly dedicated to air quality control and air quality monitoring in environmental and pollution research, pharmaceutical, food and veterinary industries, biomedical and health environment…

Based on a cyclonic technology, combined to a high air flow rate, Coriolis µ offers the most efficient particles collection in 10 minutes. The biological particles such as toxins, virus, bacteria, molds, pollens, spores are collected and concentrated in a liquid ready to be analyzed with microbiological and cellular and molecular biology methods.

  • The most efficient concentration of biological particles
  • High Air Flow Rate & Long Time Monitoring option – Up to 6 hours
  • Compatible with any downstream experiments – divisible samples for several analysis in parallel
  • Flexible liquid sample output
  • No saturation of the collection media for charged environment

The Coriolis µ is based on an innovative and patented technology.
The principle is to transfer the airborne particles into a liquid sample. This liquid sample output allows thus to overcome the traditional methods limits and especially Coriolis technology differentiates from impaction by 3 main parameters :

  • high air flow rate to collect efficiently even very low diameter particles such as viruses – 300 L/min
  • long time collection to monitor an area for several hours, a whole batch of production – up to 6 hours
  • Compatibility with any analysis method Products :
  •  Sterile cone prefilled with specific liquid sample
  •  Air is aspirated and drawn into the cone forming a vortex
  • Particles are centrifuged into the wall of the cone and separated from air
  • Contaminants in the liquid sample are ready for analysis
