Most recent regulations are encouraging the use of continuous viable air monitoring in critical areas. The BioCapt® Single-Use (BCSU) Cleanroom Microbial Monitor by Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) is an active sampling method that is superior to the usage of settle plates, that additionally creates validated and actionable data.
The BioCapt Single-Use helps minimize microbial false positives in monitored clean areas by reducing contamination from the handling of agar settle plates, resulting in a decrease in investigations and an increase in productivity. Additionally, many costly and time consuming sterilization steps, such as autoclaving, disinfecting, handling and logistics are eliminated. This innovative approach to viable microbial air sampling and monitoring builds on the collection efficiencies of the BioCapt stainless steel viable impactor, while also virtually eliminating false positives from handling through specialized packaging and single-use application.
The BioCapt Microbial Impactor (Single-Use) achieves sampling with minimal air disruption and can be used to sample efficiently from 25 to 50 L/min (LPM) to suit both routine monitoring and fast sampling needs. The 25 LPM 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, sharing the advantages of the known and trusted single use technology. Validated at the Centre for Applied Microbiology & Research (CAMR), a Health Protection Agency (HPA) at Porton Down, 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.
