Several units of Coriolis® µ Biological air sampler have been recently delivered to the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The Coriolis® µ equipment will be used to achieve a huge environmental project planned for the next coming years.
Several units of Coriolis® µ Biological air sampler have been recently delivered to the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The Coriolis® µ equipment will be used to achieve a huge environmental project planned for the next coming years. The objective is to create a complete database with the genomes of environmental bacteria, viruses and also fungi from the whole country. The sampling areas will be as outdoor or indoor environments including schools, hospitals, gardens…
Coriolis® µ air sampler has been selected by the University as the most suitable solution for this mission. The system is based on a cyclonic technology which concentrates the biological particles into liquid with high efficiency. The obtained sample can then be analyzed by any downstream methods. Thanks to this unit, micro-organisms can be detected even in a very low concentration. For this study, the Coriolis ® will be equipped with the Long Time Monitoring option that allows to collect until six hours which is essential for this type of collection.
This project is realized in collaboration with the NEA (National Environmental Agency).
