VersaTrap Spore Trap Cassette

The VersaTrap spore trap cassettes provide the sampling versatility to capture mould spores and other particles ranging from 1.5 to 3.9 µm. Sampling is as easy as selecting the flow rate that will target the desired particle size (see table below), calibrating a pump to the flow rate, and collecting the sample. The narrow slit inlet focuses particles toward the clear glass slide, coated with a sticky substrate that holds the sample securely. Targeted size particles are effectively held in a well-defined rectangular footprint. VersaTrap ensures sample integrity because each slide is encased in a SureSeal certified leak-free cassette.

Sterile Surface Swab Kit

The Surface Swab Kit is ideal for determining the relative degree and type of biological contamination in an area. This non-destructive method can be used safely on most surfaces and is ideal for irregular surfaces such as air return grills. Rayon tip is inert, non-toxic, and permits good sample retrieval and adsorption.

Sterile Surface Swab Kit
Sterile Surface Swab Kit

  •  
  • Samples surfaces for bioaerosol contamination
  • Easy and fast to use
  • Individually packed sterile swabs assure sample integrity
  • Inexpensive method
  • Suitable for characterising source contamination
  • Non-destructive

Applications include testing the level of microbial contamination on surfaces such as air conditioning units, kitchen equipment, hospital wards, spas, or areas of flooding where sewage contamination is suspected.

Easy Four Step Sampling:

  1. Remove the sterile swab from its package aseptically.
  2. Remove the sealing cap from the tube containing the sponge and moisten the swab tip.
  3. Using a rolling motion, gently swab the desired area thoroughly. Templates are included in the kit for defined area sampling.
  4. Insert the swab into the tube, replace the sealing cap, and prepare for transport to a laboratory.

Ghost Wipes

Robust Ghost Wipes hold together even when used on the roughest surfaces. In the lab, Ghost Wipes readily and completely dissolve during digestion for maximum recovery of target analyte(s) - there is no messy fibrous material to clog the sample uptake capillary or nebuliser. Ghost Wipes are included in the Wipe Sample Test Kit (part number 225-2401A).

PERMEA-TEC Pads

Toxic chemicals such as pesticides, aromatic amines, and isocyanates can permeate gloves and protective clothing. Wide variations in the chemical resistance of gloves and protective clothing compositions make protective equipment selection difficult - especially if using mixtures of chemicals in the workplace. Gloves are flexed, stretched, pressured and abraded in use which can cause premature chemical breakthrough and alter reliance on ASTM laboratory breakthrough data. PERMEA-TEC pads should be used for initial evaluation of a new glove. They are worn under gloves during actual field use and show the point at which breakthrough occurs. This information enables the safety professional to select a glove that will perform optimally in terms of protection, employee acceptance, and cost effectiveness. PERMEA-TEC pads are sensitive to 3 to 5 µg for aromatic amines and isocyanates. Solvent PERMEA-TEC pads also contain a charcoal pad for GC analysis.

PERMEA-TEC Pads
PERMEA-TEC Pads pre-exposure
PERMEA-TEC Pads post-exposure

The PERMEA-TEC pads should be placed on thumb, middle finger and palm with the pad side facing out before donning the gloves. These locations represent areas where the highest degree of contact and abrasion occur. The pads should be checked hourly for breakthrough.
