Create a simple efficient solution for sampling airborne pollutants and pathogens such as Black Mold Fungi Aspergillus which produce aflatoxins and cause pulmonary infections.
REPS - A Novel Solution
Using Piezo Films to Solve the Problem of Sampling Airborne Pathogens and Other Air Pollutants
Problem – Active air sampling equipment using air pumps, or other air movers such as fans, is the accepted state of technology; but it comes with some equally accepted shortcomings. Active samplers pull in surrounding air and can sample at different short term intervals. However, the equipment can be expensive and labor intensive, and each monitoring area is confined to a small space.
Solution – REPS is fully passive and so it requires no power source. Just place collectors in any area you choose and sample for however long you want. REPS is inconspicuous, inexpensive and disposable.
REPS - an Innovative Approach
Solving the Problems of Sampling Airborne Pathogens and Other Air Pollutants with Piezo Films
Problem – Active Sampling can be noisy, inconvenient and affect the viability of some biological samples.
Solution – REPS is compact, silent and it's gentle, passive sampling method enhances the preservation of microbial viability. REPS collectors can be used for hours, days or months in a confined space or over a large area. Collector cycles can be hours, days or months.
