Particle Measuring Systems Announces the BioCapt® Single-Use Microbial Impactor for Air Sampling


New microbial air sampler minimizes false positives and eliminates costly sterilization steps

December 3, 2015, Boulder, CO - The BioCapt® Single-Use Microbial Impactor, designed by and offered exclusively through Particle Measuring Systems, helps minimize false positives for microbial activity in pharmaceutical cleanrooms by reducing contamination from handling of microbial plates.

This results in a decrease in the number investigations and time associated with those investigations, allowing personnel to focus on improving production operations. Additionally, many costly and time consuming sterilization steps, such as autoclaving, disinfecting, handling and logistics are eliminated

New automated particle counting system to analyse large sample numbers

The newly developed Pamas AS3 autosampling system analyses several hundred samples per day with unattended operation

Many laboratories are using automatic particle counters to determine the solid contamination within their fluid samples. In most cases, standard sample systems are sufficient for everyday laboratory measurements. Difficulties arise when a high number of sample measurements are required daily.

Lasair III – A true little gem of an instrument!

I had the opportunity recently to give some training on a Lasair III particle counter to a new customer. In preparation I reviewed the features of the instrument by scanning its manual.  Reading through the manual reminded me again what a well-designed an versatile instrument the Lasair III is ! In my experience a customer wants to make a simple measurement to check the air quality quickly in an area, or they want to test to standard like ISO 14644-1.

BioCapt® Single-Use Microbial Impactor

The BioCapt® Single-Use Microbial Impactor utilizes a radial slit impactor design with the added benefit of risk and cost reduction. The fully prepared and sterilized unit eliminates agar plate preparation and minimizes operator handling. Operator sample handling has been directly linked to costly false-positive investigations. As a ready-to-use sterilized unit, the BioCapt Microbial Impactor (Single-Use) eliminates unintended contamination by removing operator interaction with media and sterile re-usable stainless steel impactor heads. The BioCapt Microbial Impactor (Single-Use) achieves sampling with minimal air disruption and can be used to sample efficiently at 25 or 50 L/min to suit both routine monitoring and fast sampling needs.

Enveloped by standards

Every operation has a specification they need their material size to be within: Whether it’s ASTM specifications for aggregate operations, key performance indicators for crushers and SAGs, or blast metrics for explosives selection, these standards are crucial in streamlining an operation’s process.
