Most recent regulations encourage the use of continuous viable air monitoring in critical areas. The BioCapt® Single-Use (BCSU) cleanroom microbial monitor from Particle Measuring Systems is an active sampling method that is superior to the use of settle plates and creates validated and actionable data. It fully meets ISO 14698-1 and anticipated EU GMP Annex 1 single-use regulatory requirements.
The BCSU helps minimize microbial false positives in monitored clean areas by reducing contamination from the handling of settle plates. This results in a decrease in investigations and an increase in productivity. The specialized packaging and single-use features additionally eliminate many costly and time-consuming sterilization steps such as autoclaving, disinfecting, and handling.
The BCSU comes in multiple choices of agar and 3 flow rates to suit both routine monitoring and fast sampling needs. The 25 L/min device continues to recover microorganisms under stressed conditions after two hours of continuous air sampling, thereby reducing the number of plate changes required for continuous air sampling.
Most recently released to fulfill requests from the market for troubleshooting and analytical applications, the 100 LPM BCSU uses the same innovative radial slit design as the 25 & 50 LPM models, and shares the advantages of the known and trusted single-use technology. Validated at the Centre for Applied Microbiology & Research (CAMR), it achieves isokinetic sampling for minimal air turbulence in compliance with ISO 14698-1 and can be used for sampling and troubleshooting at 100 LPM.
Use the BCSU in conjunction with the MiniCapt® Mobile and MiniCapt Remote instruments for a fully validated microbial monitoring solution. Learn more about this innovative continuous air sampling solution below.
