The Coriolis micro, bio-air sampler, is used at the Pasteur Institute for Virus collect in laboratory and hospital conditions.
The Pasteur institute is an international research institute of excellence, well known for its Virus studies. In order to analyze airborne transmission of virus, the Coriolis air sampler have been used in Laboratory conditions and well as in hospitals. The Coriolis is a biological air sampler capable of collecting pathogenic agents such as virus. The system is based on cyclonic technology and the biological particles are concentrated into liquid, which can be analyzed by any downstream methods. The analysis results is then obtained in a few hours. The results are used to set up the counteract to fight against the spread of the virus.
