Coriolis Compact for the analysis of indoor and outdoor micro-organisms

The Coriolis Compact portable air sampler weighs only 1.2 kg and has a long battery life (up to 8h). Its small size makes it easy to transport and it is the ideal choice for both outdoor and indoor air quality monitoring. Its scope of application is very broad: Biocontamination of medical or health environments, virological sampling, biological risk control, environmental pollution control, etc. This microbiological air sampler range meets the requirements of air monitoring even when microbiological contamination is low.

Mobile and easy to use, the Coriolis Compact is suitable for indoor and outdoor sampling.

Due to an improved battery autonomy, it performs up to 8 hours of continuous sampling. The cycles of sampling are programmable.

As the sample is collected thought a dry cyclonic technology, it can be easily recover with any suitable buffer to perform analysis. The obtained sample is compatible with multiple downstream analysis such as Culture, PCR, qPCR, or NGS so it gives access to highly sensitive and specific results in only a few hours. Bertin provides single use consumable to avoid cross contamination.

1. Sterile cone is placed on the device and locked.
2. Aspirated air runs into the cone.
3. Particles contained in the air are retained in the cone wall.
4. Collected particles are recovered by adding liquid to the cone.

Virus collection & detection

One of the main challenges of virus monitoring in the air is obtaining adequately concentrated samples. With its dry sampling technology, the Coriolis Compact is a perfect instrument to detect viruses in the air. Indeed, after each collection, users can choose the volume of solution in which they wish to resuspend their sample. Additionally, solutions that can preserve the nucleic acids present in the sample can also be taken advantage of. For example, in the case of RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, users have the option to immediately resuspend their sample in Trizol to protect RNA against degradation.
