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 pre-filled in a cone, without saturation of the collection media.
Compared to traditional impaction methods on agar plates, Coriolis 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. Dedicated to CBRN Recon Teams, Coriolis® RECON is ruggedized and allows long time collection up to 6 hours (option). Furthermore, it possesses specific characteristics for military application in-field such as a very high air flow rate up to 600L/min, a multidirectional head air inlet, a light weight etc.
