Spin Air - Air Sampler

spin air cap


Microbial air contamination monitoring is a key process in facilities with special air cleanliness needs. Spin Air samplers grant users a compact, portable, simple solution to air sampling. Accuracy and precision-enhancing Spin technology enables Spin Air samplers to outperform the accuracy of other air sampling systems.

Pharmaceutical, medical device, food, and cosmetic manufacturers, as well as healthcare facilities all benefit from the use of Spin Air samplers to assess airborne bacterial and fungal bioburden.

IUL’s air samplers are very compact and devised for easy transportation to enable sampling to take place anywhere needed. Operating these is very simple, a Petri dish is inserted and the device’s lid is screwed in place. Next, accurate volumes of air are sampled by forcing them towards the Petri plate’s agar surface. After incubation, colony enumeration enables to evaluate microbial air quality.


Unrivalled Spin technology: IUL’s Spin technology enhances air sampling accuracy, precision and resolution even when sampling in mid / highly contaminated environments (particularly useful for GMP Grade C and D cleanrooms and regular environment sampling).

This sampling technology uses 100% of the Petri plate agar surface to plate microorganisms (only 5% is used in other air samplers), this improves data statistical significance greatly.

Sampling ease: These air samplers are compact and portable, they can be attached to a tripod for adequate sampling direction. If airflow problems arise, these are pointed out by a noisy alarm and sampling is aborted. A handy countdown function avoids operator interference with results.

Regulatory compliance: Spin Air sampler complie with USP 797 & 1116 regulations. DQ, IQ and OQ documentation will be supplied with the device.

Full traceability: LIMS friendly data records, printer connectivity, and barcode reader compatibility all enable full sampling traceability.
