The SKC BioStage impactor is designed for sampling airborne fungi and bacteria. It meets NIOSH requirements and ACGIH recommendations for sampling indoor and outdoor microorganisms. BioStage impactor is comprised of an inlet cone, precision-drilled 400-hole impactor stage, and a base that holds a standard-size agar plate.
The BioStage impactor is made of precision-tooled aluminum, the sampler contains a jet classification stage and base plate precision-threaded together for a positive seal and an inlet cone. The impactor stage contains precision-drilled holes. A sampling pump (e.g., SKC QuickTake 30) draws air through the sampler where multiple jets of air direct airborne particles toward the surface of the agar collection medium.
The BioStage impactors are easy to use. A barbed outlet fitting allows fast and easy connection to a vacuum pump. The SureLock positive seal keeps the jet classification stage and agar plate securely in place and prevents leakage during sampling. Sampling is as simple as sealing an agar plate inside the BioStage, connecting the impactor to a pump such as the QuickTake 30 operating at the appropriate flow rate, sampling for two to five minutes, removing the agar plate, and sending it to a qualified laboratory for analysis.
