Air sampling is a key component of effective environmental monitoring programs that ensure critical areas, such as production areas and medical facilities, meet the requirements for microbial limits.
While passive air monitoring uses settle plates for the quantitative analysis of the air, active air monitoring requires the use of a microbial air sampler. Air samplers impact microorganisms of a known volume of air onto a culture medium.
Our air samplers are based on different principles, enabling technology selection to suit your needs. We offer products specifically designed for the food and beverage industries, explosion hazard areas, cleanrooms and isolators, and compressed gas monitoring. Our easy-to-use monitoring systems are designed for many environment monitoring needs.
The MAS-100® series is a complete and accurate system for reliable and easy ambient air monitoring. The MAS-100® series is based on the Anderson impaction principle and uses settle plates or contact plates.
The family of MAS-100® instruments consists of dedicated instruments for different applications, such as:
The RCS® series is renowned for safe and reliable environmental monitoring of ambient air and compressed gases using agar strips.
