    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
