We specialise in the design and development of electronic systems and products to support the needs of science.  Our key products are the MicroBio range of bioaerosol samplers with accessories, including a validation kit.


Air will often contain micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi; these are known as bioaerosols.  None of these actually live in the air, the atmosphere tends to kill off most of them.  However, they are frequently transported attached to other particles, such as skin flakes, soil, dust, or dried residues from water droplets.  Aggregation of cells into clumps can enhance the survival whilst airborne.  Bacterial cells when they become airborne normally rapidly die, within a few seconds, due to evaporation of water associated with the particle.  Thus with higher humidity, higher bioaerosol levels can prevail.  Airborne fungal cells (yeasts, moulds, spores) can remain viable for much longer periods, even at low relative humidity and high or low temperature extremes.  These can pose health risks for humans and animals.


MicroBio MB1 and MB2 are used to collect samples from the air to help monitor and guard against potentially harmful bioaerosols.  They are the most economical samplers available and are used extensively in indoor air quality, food, agriculture, hospital and clean room applications.
