Coriolis Compact for the analysis of indoor and outdoor micro-organisms

The Coriolis Compact portable air sampler weighs only 1.2 kg and has a long battery life (up to 8h). Its small size makes it easy to transport and it is the ideal choice for both outdoor and indoor air quality monitoring. Its scope of application is very broad: Biocontamination of medical or health environments, virological sampling, biological risk control, environmental pollution control, etc. This microbiological air sampler range meets the requirements of air monitoring even when microbiological contamination is low.

Virus collection & detection

One of the main challenges of virus monitoring in the air is obtaining adequately concentrated samples. With its dry sampling technology, the Coriolis Compact is a perfect instrument to detect viruses in the air. Indeed, after each collection, users can choose the volume of solution in which they wish to resuspend their sample. Additionally, solutions that can preserve the nucleic acids present in the sample can also be taken advantage of. For example, in the case of RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, users have the option to immediately resuspend their sample in Trizol to protect RNA against degradation.

Lightweight and portable, Coriolis Compact can easily be handled with CBRN personal protective equipment, and can be moved and positioned at strategic locations for indoor and outdoor sampling.
Robust and compact, the air sampler is therefore perfectly suited to the operational needs of armed forces and civil security organizations in the event of biological threats.
The collected particles can then be analyzed to ensure detection and identification of CBRN threats. Coriolis air samplers are the first players in the detection chain providing CBRN detection and identification equipment with well-concentrated biological agent samples.

Expert advice


Mariana Gaboriau

Field Application Scientist

"The Coriolis Compact allows to collect more particles with up to 8h hours straight sampling. So you have access to a representative sample of your environment."

Floriane Cohen

Field Application Scientist

"Thanks to its cyclonic collection, the sample is compatible with rapid analysis methods such as qPCR. It gives results in less than an hour."


We used Coriolis compact to investigate the microbiome of alpine pastures. The device is easy to handle, works well in remote areas and offers a simple way to characterize complex environments.
