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 in food, medical and pharmaceutical industries. The RCS® high flow touch microbial air sampler features a high-resolution color touchscreen, an intuitive software, and an ergonomic design allow for maximum reliability in monitoring ambient air and compressed gas using agar strips.
All RCS® Samplers employ the principle of centrifugal impaction according to Reuter and provide the following key benefits:
Viable Air Samplers are used for quantitative determination of airborne contamination in cleanrooms and isolators.
GMP compliant solutions for process monitoring in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
ISO 14698-1 describes standard methods to measure biological contamination in cleanrooms and associated controlled environments.
Perforated lids are crucial to the physical and biological sampling efficiency of impaction-based microbial air samplers.
Modified methods in tests with the MAS-100 NT® air sampler and ICR settle plates.
The scope of the new norm is to establish the requirements, recommendations and methodology for microbiological contamination control in clean controlled environments.
Active microbial air sampling is frequently required for cleanrooms and associated controlled environments.
Environmental monitoring (EM) is the key process measuring the efficiency of the sum of all measures implemented to minimize the contamination risk in the aseptic manufacturing environment.
As portable air samplers are sometimes moved and used across environments with different levels of microbial contamination, there is a potential risk of cross-contamination between areas.
