Coriolis Recon - Bertin Instruments


    Coriolis Recon

    Coriolis RECON is a portable, light and ruggedized bio-air sampler for biological warfare agents collect for military or first responders 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 case of an event with biological attack suspicion. The Coriolis RECON have 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 thus to collect and overcome the limitation due to military context and especially Coriolis technology differentiates by 3 main parameters:

    • high air flow rate to collect efficiently even very low diameter particles such as biological warfare agent – 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 to maintain the collection liquid volume constant over the entire sampling.

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

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


    Coriolis Recon for biological contamination control:

    – Collect and concentrate Biological Warfare Agents in liquid
    – Liquid output offers compatibility with all type of analysis
    – Portable, easy-to-deploy and to set-up

    Expert advice

    Sophie Dubacq

    Application and Product Specialist

    "With an easy deployement and a simple interface, the Coriolis RECON is the best option to do air sampling on operation. "


    "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


    "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."
