Why Choose High Flow Microbial Air Samplers

Introduction Most microbial air samplers sample at 100 litres per minute, taking 10 minutes to sample 1m3 of air. Ten minutes can be a long time waiting on site for something to complete; made even worse if multiple samples are needed with different media and in several zones within an area. This time represents a cost to your business, added downtime to production or disruption to your customers. The use of high flow rate samplers may appear obvious in this case – shorter time to take samples. But, is this correct in real life situations and will a high flow Read More …
