Zefon Via-Cell® Cassettes
The Via-Cell® bioaerosol sampling cassette is designed to collect both viable and non-viable bioaerosols, maintain viability of the viable mould spores and prevent growth during transport to the laboratory.
Sampling with the Via-Cell® is very similar to its sister product Air-O-Cell®. Simply connect it to any pump calibrated to 15LPM and run your sample.
The key to the Via-Cell® is that the media used for collection maintains viability of spores and allows several analysis options.
One Sample, Multiple Analysis Options
The Via-Cell® sampler is the perfect tool for collecting viable organisms and culturing them on agar plates. Simply dilute the media in sterile water and transfer to a culture plate.
The Via-Cell® utilises a water soluble collection media which is ideal for PCR and other chemical types of analysis. Once the sample is diluted in water, it can be transferred most anywhere.
Samples collected using the Via-Cell® sampler may also be analysed using direct microscopy to give total spore counts.
