Staplex® MBS-1 Single Stage Microbial Air Sampler



  • Fast, efficient design, easy to use to collect and assay aerobic species of bacteria and fungi
  • Meets ACGIH recommendations for bioaerosol sampling. Corrosion resistant, easily sterilizable
  • Utilizes standard 100 x 15 mm disposable
  • plastic petri dishes
  • Verifiable flow rate
  • Made in U.S.A.
Staplex® Model MBS-1 and MBS-1A Single Stage Microbial Air Samplers are designed to meet the specifications of the latest A.C.G.I.H. Bioaerosol Committee concerning sampling protocol and analytical procedures. The single stage design and verifiable low sampling flow rate minimize microorganism damage and allow efficient sampling and sterilizing. Spring retainers allow more samples to be taken in less time, with less culture damage.
Designed for in-house microbial sampling, the MBS-1 viable sampler collects and enumerates all airborne microorganisms. The MBS-1 is comprised of an aluminum inert core, sampling stage and a base plate held together by three spring clamps and sealed with O-ring gaskets. The sampling stage had 400 precision-machined orifices.
The collection and assessment of aerosol samples is very simple. A petri dish containing an agar medium appropriate for the microorganisms that may be encountered is placed in the instrument and a sample of air is drawn. The petri dish is then removed, inverted in its cover, incubated and counted by an accepted method. (Petri dishes/agar not included.)

Model MBS-6A (Six Stage) Includes 220 VAC Air Sampler

Description:
Staplex® Model MBS-6 and MBS-6A Six Stage Microbial Air Samplers are multi-orifice, cascade impactors used to measure the concentration and particle size distribution of aerobic bacteria and fungi in the intramural or ambient air. These units have been widely used for enumerating the viable particles in a microbial aerosol. Viable particles can be collected on a variety of bacteriological agar and incubated in situ for counting or identification. These samplers are designed so that all particles collected, regardless of physical size, shape, or density are sized aerodynamically and can be directly related to human lung deposition.

The multi-orifice cascade impactor size selective feature permits assessment of an airborne contaminant in relation to its disease potential arising from its deposition site within the respiratory tract.

The Staplex® MBS-6 and MBS-6A requires 12 glass Petri dishes. and a general purpose, solid bacteriological agar medium (not included), which is placed in six of the glass Petri dishes. The collection plate with Petri dishes are inserted on each stage of the sampling instrument and a sample of air is drawn. The petri dishes are then removed, inverted in their covers, incubated and counted by an accepted method.

Range of particle sizes collected by each stage (in microns)


Stage 1        7.0 and above
Stage 2         4.7 to 7.0
Stage 3         3.3 to 4.7
Stage 4         2.1 to 3.3
Stage 5         1.1 to 2.1
Stage 6         0.65 to 1.1
