AIRBIO ONE RAPID-VIRUS PACK consisting of: AIRBIO ONE air sampler 200 l/m, 1 s/s Petri aspirating head with s/s cover head, 1 s/s collection liquid system for virus, 2 conical tube PP (225 ml), battery charger, 1 calibration certificate and 1 robustus carrying case.

The AIRBIO ONE RAPID-VIRUS is an innovative instrument for airborne viable particle sampling.

The great advantage of this instrument is the possibility to perform two different applications:

  1. collecting virus in a liquid sample for subsequent rapid analytical identification (PCR)
  2. active air sampling according to the traditional method of impact on agar culture media to count colonies (CFU)

The collection of micro-organisms and virus on culture media requires time for incubation before results. Instead, much faster results are obtained applying the liquid collection method.

This method has great advantages when applied in the following fields:

Industrial segment (pharma, agro-food, beverage, etc.) for a quick reaction in identifying the contamination

Military branches for notifying possible biological attacks

Hospitals for finding the correct pharmacological product and treatment for patients

Public institutes (school, restaurant, bar, metro, train, municipality buildings, etc.) for disease/pandemic monitoring

AIRBIO RAPID-VIRUS also allows a quick assessment of the disinfection protocols' efficacy.

The instrument is the result of the European NATO project EUCLID CEPA 13 (“protection of personnel against pathogenic micro-organisms via air sampling and rapid detection and identification”).
