Spin Air – Microbial Air Sampler

Pharmaceutical, medical device, food, and cosmetic manufacturers, as well as healthcare facilities all benefit from the use of SPIN AIR samplers to assess airborne bacterial and fungal bioburden. IUL’s air samplers are very compact and devised for easy transportation to enable sampling to take place anywhere needed. Operating these is very simple, a Petri dish is inserted and the device’s lid is screwed in place. Next, accurate volumes of air are sampled by forcing them towards the Petri plate’s agar surface. After incubation, colony enumeration enables to evaluate microbial air quality. This sampling technology uses 100% of the Petri plate agar surface to plate microorganisms (only 5% is used in other air samplers), this improves data statistical significance greatly.


These air samplers are compact and portable, they can be attached to a tripod for adequate sampling direction. If airflow problems arise, these are pointed out by a noisy alarm and sampling is aborted. A handy countdown function avoids operator interference with results.

Spin Air sampler allows to comply with USP 797 & 1116 regulations. DQ, IQ and OQ documentation will be supplied with the device.
