Coriolis µ is an innovative biological air sampler for bio-contamination assessment, mainly dedicated to air quality control and air quality monitoring in environmental and pollution research, the pharmaceutical, food and veterinary industries, in biomedical and health environments, and so on.
Based on a cyclonic technology, combined with a high air flow rate, Coriolis μ offers the most efficient particle collection in 10 minutes. Biological particles such as toxins, viruses, bacteria, molds, pollens and spores are collected and concentrated in a liquid ready to be analyzed with microbiological and cellular and molecular biology methods.

Access to alternative technical analysis:
Thanks to its liquid collection media, Coriolis technology gives access to highly sensitive and specific results in only a few hours thanks to its compatibility with all biological standard methods, Culture, PCR, QPCR , ELISA, and more.
Split up your sample for different analyses:
With a consistent liquid volume of 15 mL, Coriolis prevents any saturation of the liquid media. It also allows the user to split up the final sample and thereby make several analyses which guarantees the representativity of the trials by testing the repeatability of the results.
Bio-contamination results beyond cultivable flora:
Analyzing by culture only allows users to count micro-organisms able to grow on agar dishes. However some biological particles in the air are not cultivable. By allowing the use of alternative techniques, Coriolis enables the count of total flora beyond the limit of cultivability.
Long time monitoring:
Air quality monitoring during a whole production process in aseptic zones or biosphere control can be critical. Coriolis equipment allows for continuous monitoring of the environment for up to 6 hours.
The Coriolis µ is based on an innovative and patented technology.
The principle is to transfer the airborne particles into a liquid sample. This liquid sample output allows users to overcome the limits of traditional methods, particularly since Coriolis technology differentiates from impaction in relation to three main parameters:
high air flow rate to collect efficiently even very low diameter particles such as viruses – 300 L/min
long time collection to monitor an area for several hours, a whole batch of production – up to 6 hours
Compatibility with any analysis method Products:
Sterile cone prefilled with specific liquid sample
Air is aspirated and drawn into the cone forming a vortex
Particles are centrifuged into the wall of the cone and separated from air
Contaminants in the liquid sample are ready for analysis
