PANDEMIC MITIGATION PLANNING - DETECTION
Coriolis µ is an innovative biological air sampler for bio-contamination assessment, mainly dedicated to air quality control and air quality monitoring in environmental and pollution research, the pharmaceutical, food and veterinary industries, in biomedical and health environments, and so on. Based on a cyclonic technology, combined with a high air flow rate, Coriolis μ offers the most efficient particle collection in 10 minutes. Biological particles such as toxins, viruses, bacteria, molds, pollens and spores are collected and concentrated in a liquid ready to be analyzed with microbiological and cellular and molecular biology methods.
Virus collection & detection
Coriolis air samplers can also be used to detect viruses in air samples. Virus-laden aerosols sampling presents many challenges. As viruses are often present at very low concentrations in the air, a large volume of air has to be collected to have reliable results. This can translate in an extremely time-consuming process —sometimes up to a week.
Thanks to its high flow rate – up to 300L/min– the Coriolis μ air sampler can be used to collect air samples for airborne virus detection in a few hours. Through its unique liquid cyclonic technology, it can collect viral particles in a chosen collection liquid. Coriolis μ samples are compatible with all rapid microbiology techniques such as qPCR or microarrays, and also NGS analysis. Virus concentrations as low as 100 genomes copies/m3 can be detected in collected air samples.
Access to alternative technical analysis:
Thanks to its liquid collection media, Coriolis technology gives access to highly sensitive and specific results in only a few hours thanks to its compatibility with all biological standard methods, Culture, PCR, QPCR , ELISA, and more.
Split up your sample for different analyses:
With a consistent liquid volume of 15 mL, Coriolis prevents any saturation of the liquid media. It also allows the user to split up the final sample and thereby make several analyses which guarantees the representativity of the trials by testing the repeatability of the results.
Bio-contamination results beyond cultivable flora:
Analyzing by culture only allows users to count micro-organisms able to grow on agar dishes. However some biological particles in the air are not cultivable. By allowing the use of alternative techniques, Coriolis enables the count of total flora beyond the limit of cultivability.
Long time monitoring:
Air quality monitoring during a whole production process in aseptic zones or biosphere control can be critical. Coriolis equipment allows for continuous monitoring of the environment for up to 6 hours.
