Qualified by CEB(France), HPA(UK) and WIS(Germany), the new generation air sampler Coriolis® developed by Bertin Technologies is an efficient liquid air sampler providing quick and reliable air control. Thanks to the innovative cyclonic technology, a large range of aerosol particles (bacteria, fungi, moulds, pollens, viruses) can be concentrated into the collection liquid, without saturation of the collection media.
Compared to traditional impaction methods on agar plates, Coriolis® µ is suitable not only for analysis by culture, but also for direct and rapid analysis methods (PCR, Cytometry, immuno-analysis, ATP-luminescence etc). It provides thus access to analysis of viable but not cultivable flora (VNC) that the impaction method cannot satisfy. Light (<3kg) and easy to decontaminate (autoclavable parts and single use consumables), Coriolis® µ is designed for clean rooms and indoor air control, and can be applied in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries, hospitals and health care centers etc
