Sources: A.Trousseau teaching hospital, Paris

Context

The monitoring of air contamination in healthcare establishments helps the prevention and the decrease of nosocomial infections. Airborne spores of pathogens microorganisms like Aspergillus fumigatus can be indeed responsible for severe diseases such as: the invasive aspergillosis.
To get a reliable control, it has to be performed with a representative sample of the surrounding air and easily analysable by associated identification and measurement techniques.

Results

● Collection time: 2 times faster than impactor
● Sensible detection
● Better representativity

In low contaminated atmosphere: Coriolis
collection efficiency ≥ Traditional air sampler
