The Sceptor Industries Inc. Omni 3000 Air Sampler is a portable, high-efficiency, wet concentrating air sampler. The unit is designed for the collection of liquid and solid aerosol particulates, including submicron-sized particles, airborne molecular contamination, biological particulates, low vapor pressure, and semi volatile chemical compounds.
The Sceptor Industries Inc. Omni 3000 Air Sampler draws air through a removable contactor, where the air and any suspended material contacts the sampling fluid which then strips out the particulate including biological matter. The sampling fluid remains in the contactor until the end of the sampling cycle allowing the contactor to operate for extended periods. This also allows more of the captured matter to be retained and concentrates particles and biological matter in the sample fluid. (The length of the cycle determines the final sample concentration of the target matter). By concentrating the target matter, sensitivity limitations of current analytical methods are overcome. Therefore, concentrations of airborne target matter, which would be undetectable using a conventional air sampler, are easily detected. The Sceptor Industries Inc. Omni 3000 Air Sampler is capable of sampling air at a rate of 300 liters per minute and delivering a final sample approximately 10 milliliters of liquid per sample.
The Sceptor Industries Inc. Omni 3000 Air Sampler will collect a sample for an operator-defined period. After the cycle is finished, the liquid in the contactor is automatically pumped into a sample cartridge. The sample fluid can then be analyzed for target contaminants using a variety of analytical methods. Compatible analysis methods include: HAPSITE, Fourier Transform Infrared, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Immunoassay, Culturing, Direct Microscopy, Mass Spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography, and Flow Cytometry, Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP), Fluoroassay, Raman Spectroscopy, ELISA, and Colorimetric Spectroscopy, among others.
