The Bio-Culture™ air sampler is the smallest, most cost effective and easiest to use sampler available for microbial air sampling.

The Bio-Culture™ air sampler features a selectable, continuous, constant sample flowrate and is simple to operate. No tools are required. Its quiet operation allows unobtrusive sampling in a variety of applications.


  • IAQ Surveys
  • Mold Sampling
  • Building Diagnostics
  • Clean Room Sampling
  • Hospital Operating Rooms
  • Pharmacutical Compounding Labs
  • USP <797> Active Air Sampling Compliance
  • Any location that you may need to verify and quantify microorganism presence


  • Flow rate - 30-120LPM (user adjustable)
  • Uses standard 90mm petri dishes
  • Sampling head design of 380 1mm diameter holes
  • Battery powered - runs for 6-8 hours (depending on flow rate, battery maintenance and backpressure)
  • Tripod mounting threads on bottom of unit - allows 90 degree sampling
  • Sampling head may be terilized by autoclave or gas torch
  • Built-in timers of 1, 2, 5 10 minutes
  • Optional calibration head allows field calibration of flow rate with a NIST traceable calibrator (note: a calibration head is required to calibrate the Bio-Culture pump, however it can be used to calibrate multiple pumps)

Simple Sampling Steps

Before sampling, ensure the battery is fully charged and that the “Low Battery” LED is not on. For greatest accuracy, the pump should be calibrated once a day.

1. Place pump in desired location.

2. Immediately before sampling, open a 90mm Agar plate.

3. Unscrew the sample head and position the plate within the mounts. Screw the head back on securely.

4. Push the “ON” button to power up the Bio-Culture™ Pump and either: (a) continue to hold the “ON” button for four seconds to put pump in “Continuous” mode, or (b) push one of the programmed time keys (1, 2, 5, or 10 minutes) for an automatic timed sample.

5. At the end of programmed sample period, pump will automatically shut off and “Complete” LED will be lit; under “Continuous” mode, push and hold “OFF” button for 2 seconds to shut off pump.

6. Unscrew the head and remove the Petri dish.

7. Replace the cap on the dish and send to an appropriate laboratory for analysis.
