Coriolis Compact – Portable cyclonic biocollector and air-sampler

Dry cyclonic biocollector intended for monitoring or biological recognition missions

Innovative dry cyclone technology compatible with standard analysis methods

  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor sampling
  • Robust, light and space-saving for use in difficult environments
  • Scheduling of collections possible

Developed under a contract with the French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA), Coriolis Compact is a dry cyclonic biocollector intended for monitoring or biological recognition missions. Lightweight and portable, it is perfectly compatible with use in NRBC clothing. It can also be placed on the ground or embarked on vehicles or on drones. The Coriolis Compact continuously collects up to 8 hours and concentrates the biological threat agents present in the air. The collected particles can then be analyzed to allow the identification of a possible biological threat. Coriolis biocollectors are the first link in the biological detection chain and supply equipment for detecting and identifying the NRBC threat.
