The device is designed to collect and store liquid samples of biological pollutants from ambient atmospheric air.

PIAP bio-vortex

Collected watered pollution sample can be transferred either to the sample container (included as a part of the device) or to an external analyzer. The container with a sealed sample can be gripped by a robotic manipulator, detached from the device and then transferred for further laboratory analysis. Easy and tool-free replacement of the contaminated device elements allows the device to collect several samples without a need for in-between decontamination. Easy and tool-free replacement of the silicone hose allows the device to collect several samples without a need for in-between decontamination.
