MICROFLOWα was developed for airborne biological contaminants sampling in order to assess the level of biocontamination in critical places, e.g. clean rooms, operating rooms, pharmaceutical production plants, food and cosmetic industries, water purification plants, landfills, etc, and in normal working life situations, with the exception of air conditioning and ventilation controls.

MICROFLOWα allows a wide range of airborne bio-contaminant sampling by impacting on agar plates (60mm contact plate or 90mm Petri dish).

Sampling principle

The sample is drawn through a perforated sampling head at constant speed for a variable time dependent upon the nature of the environment to be monitored. The air flow is designed for maximum impaction of airborne contaminants on to a plate containing media optimized for microbial detection. Once the sampling is finished, the plate is removed and incubated. At the end of the incubation period, the plate colony count can be obtained to evaluate the contamination level.
