AES CHEMUNEX Sampl'air® ISO 14698-1 Validated by UK Health Protection Agency

AES Samplair Air Sampler

Sampl'air® is a high performance but affordable impaction based air sampler for the monitoring of airborne contaminants.

Its performance has been evaluated according to the ISO 14698-1 standard by the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA) in Porton Down.

The Institute said in its conclusion that: "The results of the physical testing of the Sampl'air® obtained were very consistent and the standard deviations were of a low order for aerobiological studies. The Sampl'air® was found to be efficient (115.9% - 138.5%) for collecting particles containing bacterial cells in the size range 2.5 - 12.5 µm compared to membrane filters.

The efficiency of the Sampl'air® for lower particle size (0.8 - 1.3µm) was found to be excellent (60.5 - 66.2%).

This suggests that the d50, the particle diameter at which the sampler efficiency drops below 50%, is approximately 0.5 µm. The percentage of microbiological particles found in indoor environments at this particle size is extremely low and therefore the Sampl’air should be capable of collecting over 99% of particles occurring in this environment."

The Sampl'air® is available in two versions, Lite and Pro, the latter offering total traceability functions.
