The Coriolis µ, Bertin Instruments’ biological air sampler for bio-contamination quality control, has been used by Nora Els, member of the Lake and Glacier Ecology Research Group, from the University of Innsbruck in Austria. She has been studying the airborne inoculation of microbial communities in glacial environments, and here is her review: 

« I use the Coriolis µ to sample bioaerosols in cold and remote environments. During the last year, the Coriolis travelled with me to Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland. It also survived four high alpine sampling campaigns, where I faced permanent subzero conditions as well as snow-, hail- and thunderstorms. I was very happy to find out that the sampling does still effectively work, even when the Coriolis µ is overall covered with rime and frost. I especially like the Coriolis µ, because it is easy to handle, mobile and has a high flow rate. The fact that the Coriolis samples in liquid is especially attractive and opens up a variety of postprocessing options. I am amazed how robust and enduring the device is and I get repeatedly asked about it from other scientists. »
