Advanced Nanoparticles sampling ON-THE-GO
What is Personal biodosimeter?
Airborne biological agents cause various infections,
and allergies, as well as create environment challenges
and meteorological phenomena. To help combat these
problems, Leti has introduced a portable, silent,
highly accurate and autonomous bioaerosol collector
with enhanced airborne pathogen sampling, including
bacteria or submicron viruses - a sensitivity lacking
in existing biodosimeters.
Particles are collected on a dry surface and then
concentrated in a small liquid medium. An analysis
can be performed leveraging a variety of techniques,
including but not limited to: culture, PCR, immunoassays,
mass spectrometry, and Raman spectroscopy.
Air quality: - Food industry - Pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries- Public buildings such as hospitals and clinics
Worker protection: prevention of nanoparticles
To develop a highly precise biodosimeter, Leti finely tuned the technology
and added a new approach:
