Bertin Instruments – Coriolis Recon air sampler

Coriolis RECON is a portable, light and ruggedized bio-air sampler for biological warfare agents collect for military or first responders operation.

 

 

Description

The Coriolis RECON is a portable, light and ruggedized bio-air sampler for biological warfare agents detection, dedicated to CBRN teams or first responders, with quick deployment in case of an event with biological attack suspicion. The Coriolis RECON have been designed to collect large concentrations of aerosols in the breathable range of 0.5 to 10 µm with an air flow rate at 600L/min, thus being more representative of the environment than traditional bio-aerosol samplers.

Thanks to its ability to collect bio-aerosol particles into liquid format, this system can be used with rapid identification techniques for biological agents (immunoassay, PCR, etc.) to provide an early warning of aerosolized biological warfare agents.

  • The most efficient concentration of biological warfare agent
  • High Air Flow Rate
  • Compatible with any downstream experiments for rapid identification
  • Bio surveillance with Long Time Monitoring – Up to 6 hours
  • Quick deployment in a military/first responder context
  • The Coriolis µ is based on an innovative and patented technology.

The Coriolis RECON is based on an innovative and patented technology. The principle is simple with strong physical validation: transfer the airborne particles into a liquid sample. This liquid sample output allows thus to collect and overcome the limitation due to military context and especially Coriolis technology differentiates by 3 main parameters:

  • high air flow rate to collect efficiently even very low diameter particles such as biological warfare agent – 600 L/min
  • long time collection to monitor an area for several hours for biosurveillance – up to 6 hours
  • compatibility with any analysis method for rapid detection Process : 1- Sterile cone which will be filled continually 2- Air is aspirated and drawn into the cone forming a vortex 3- Particles are centrifuged into the wall of the cone and separated from air 4- Contaminants in the liquid sample are ready for analysis
