    Coriolis RECON

    Coriolis RECON is a portable, light and ruggedized bio-air sampler for biological warfare agents collection for military or first responder operation.

    The Coriolis RECON is a portable, light and ruggedized bio-air sampler for biological warfare agents detection, dedicated to CBRN teams or first responders, with quick deployment in the event of a suspected biological attack.

    The Coriolis RECON has been designed to collect large concentrations of aerosols in the breathable range of 0.5 to 10 µm with an air flow rate at 600L/min, thus being more representative of the environment than traditional bio-aerosol samplers. Thanks to its ability to collect bio-aerosol particles into liquid format, this system can be used with rapid identification techniques for biological agents (immunoassay, PCR, etc.) to provide an early warning of aerosolized biological warfare agents.

    The Coriolis RECON is based on an innovative and patented technology. The principle is simple with strong physical validation: transfer the airborne particles into a liquid sample. This liquid sample output allows users to collect and overcome the limits of the military context, particularly since Coriolis technology differentiates in relation to three main parameters:

    • high air flow rate to collect efficiently even very low diameter particles such as biological warfare agents – 600 L/min
    • long time collection to monitor an area for several hours for biosurveillance – up to 6 hours
    • compatibility with any analysis method for rapid detection Process: 1- Sterile cone which will be filled continually 2- Air is aspirated and drawn into the cone forming a vortex 3- Particles are centrifuged into the wall of the cone and separated from air 4- Contaminants in the liquid sample are ready for analysis

    Long time monitoring option: The long time monitoring option allows users to maintain the collection liquid volume at a constant rate over the entire sampling period.

    Air sampling can be done over an extended period of time (from 1 minute to 6 hours of collection) to assess biological contamination.

    This option converts the air sampler Coriolis into air monitoring equipment that provides new investigation possibilities for the bio-surveillance of risk areas, a critical event or in combination with a warning system.

    Expert advice

    Sophie Dubacq

    Application and Product Specialist

    "Easy to deploy and with a simple interface, the Coriolis RECON is the best option to do air sampling on operations. "

    Reviews

    "We use the Coriolis as part of the research microorganisms in the environment with very low level but very high risk. This is, for us, the only Air Sampler that allows both to maintain the integrity of the microorganism that is to be analyzed by culture, but allows immediate methods (microscopy) or fast as fluorescence, PCR , DNA etc."

    Michel Thibaudon

    RNSA

    "Coriolis allows a straightforward intervention between field and bench work when applying molecular tools to target specific fungal species or strains in environmental air samples."
