- Model 300-P - Enhanced Bioaerosol Collector



Inhalation of viruses, bacteria, fungal spores and toxins can lead to respiratory infections and allergic reactions. Existing bioaerosol samplers are designed to collect particles > 0.5µm and therefore have low collection efficiency for viral aerosols, exhaled proteins and other fragments of biological material. Common sampling methods often break apart and inactivate viable viruses and microorganisms through mechanical stress and irreversible desiccation.

A New Sampling Approach

A laminar-flow water condensation particle growth technique substantially improves the collection of bioaerosols (<10nm to 10µm) sampling directly into a liquid medium.

  • Airborne disease transmission research
  • Environmental microbiome studies
  • Natural infectious disease/pandemic surveillance in public, transportation, medical and agricultural settings
  • Monitoring biocontamination in clean pharmaceutical aseptic manufacturing
  • Non-invasive medical diagnostics of exhaled breath particulates
  • Defense/Homeland Security biosurveillence for early warning of an aerosolized bioterrorism attack
  • Atmospheric research in ice nucleation and cloud formation

  • Particle Size Range 5 nm to >10 µm wet collection
