SAS 180 & SAS 360 Air Samplers


A petri dish(es) containing appropriate agar medium is placed in the instrument. Air is aspirated at a fixed speed for variable time through a cover which has been machined with a series of small holes. The resulting laminar air flow is directed onto the surface of the agar plate. The agar plate is removed, shipped to our laboratory, incubated, and counted by our trained analysts.

Call 724-853-4047 for more information.

Zefon Bio-Pump


The Zefon Bio-Pump is a portable, battery-powered pump that draws airborne particles through a tapered slitted orifice and impacts them on an adhesive-coated cover slip. The pump is the simplest and most convenient way to sample with Air-O-Cell and Allergenco cassettes. ​

U.S. Micro-Solutions, Inc. sells Allergenco cassettes at low cost to our customers. Call 724-853-4047 for ordering information.

Inner Wall Check Sampler
  • Flow rate of 15 liters/min
  • Extra long battery life
  • Small and lightweight
  • Very quiet operation
  • Quick-charge battery charger included (approx 3 hours)
  • Nothing to prepare or clean - just place the cassette on the pump, set the time and go

Andersen N6 Single Stage Air Sampler


The Andersen N6 single stage sampler is generally considered the "gold standard" for collection of viable air samples. ​

It is comprised of an aluminum inlet cone, sampling stage, and base plate. The sampling stage has 400 precision-machined orifices. A petri dish containing an appropriate agar medium is placed in the instrument and a sample of air is drawn. The air enters the sampler and accelerates through the orifices of the stage; smaller particles are collected by inertial impaction on the agar plate. Viable particles are retained on the agar plate and the exhaust air is carried through the outlet in the base of the instrument to the vacuum source. The petri dish is then removed, shipped to our laboratory, incubated, and counted by our trained analysts. The pump may also be used to collect carpet dust samples.

U.S. Micro-Solutions, Inc. provides free calibration of the sampler prior to rental and free carpet cassettes. Call 724-853-4047 for more information.
