Zefon Air-O-Cell Bioaerosol Sampling Cassette

The Air-O-Cell® is a unique air sampling cassette specifically designed for the rapid collection of a wide range of airborne aerosols including mould spores, pollen, insect parts, skin cell fragments, fibers (eg asbestos, fiberglass, cellulose, clothing fibers) and inorganic particulate (eg ceramic, fly ash, copy toner). The Air-O-Cell® collects both viable and non-viable sample specimens, providing a much broader overview of potential allergens contaminants than conventional sampling techniques.

The Air-O-Cell® operates upon the principle of inertial impaction. Particulate laden air is accelerated as it is drawn through the cassettes tapered inlet slit and directed towards a small slide containing the collection media, where the particles become impacted, and the air flow continues out the exit orifice. The adhesive nature of the collection media prevents the collected particulate from blurring or being washed off during the laboratory staining process, and eliminates sample loss from vibration during handling and shipment.

After sampling is completed, the cassettes are sent to a laboratory, where the slides are removed and direct microscopic analysis can be immediately performed. The collection media is compatible with a wide range of biological stains and refractive index oils, allowing direct quantitative analysis of organic and inorganic particulate.

The Air-O-Cell® can be used with any standard off-the-shelf area sampling pump capable of drawing 15 LPM open flow. The small compact size makes Air-O-Cell® suitable for use in confined or restrictive spaces.

With its proprietary engineered design, ease of use, and compatibility with typical everyday area sampling pumps, its easy to see how the Air-O-Cell® cassette is setting the new standard in IAQ sampling and analysis.

* Air-O-Cell cassettes have a limited shelf life.
