BioCapt® Single-Use
Microbial Impactor
Without measurement there is no control.
• Culture media are validated to be
stored either at room temperature or
under refrigeration, with a shelf life of
up to 9 months
• Offered in standard culture media of TSA
and SDA, as well as client-specific,
pre-validated microbiological culture
• Compatible with leading active air
monitoring systems
The BioCapt Single-Use active air microbial sampler is the latest
innovation in the BioCapt Air Sampling product line. Using a radial slit
impactor design similar to other BioCapt Air Sampling atria, the product
complies with ISO 14698-1. This fully-prepared and sterilized unit
eliminates agar plate preparation and minimizes operator handling.
Operator sample handling has been directly linked to costly falsepositive investigations. As a ready-to-use sterilized unit, the BioCapt
Single-Use eliminates unintended contamination by removing operator
interaction with media and sterile re-usable stainless steel impactor
This product achieves sampling with minimal air disruption and can be
used to sample efficiently at 25 or 50 l/min (recommended) to suit both
routine monitoring and fast sampling needs.
Gamma-irradiated and H2O2 impermeable packing – The BioCapt
Single-Use is gamma-irradiated in the final manufacturing step after it
is triple-bagged, with the two outer bags made of H2O2 impermeable
packaging. Elimination of external contamination improves reliability
and enables validated recovery of microorganisms on the prepared
culture media.
• Reduced risk of contamination by
improper handling of media plates
(elimination of false positives)
• Eliminates time consuming and operatordependent cleaning and process steps
associated with traditional stainless steel
microbiological samplers. Specifically:
• Disinfection
• Sanitization
• Sterilization and autoclaving
• Simplified SOP’s eliminate possible
injuries and handling concerns wtih
stainless steel impactors
• Risk reduction during the introduction
and withdrawal of microbiological
sampling plates in sterile production areas
GMP compliance – BioCapt Single-Use meets GMP Compliance
guidance for microbiological monitoring in cleanrooms and sterile
production facilities during aseptic and sterile production.
BioCapt Single-Use is easily introduced into a new environmental
monitoring program or into any active air monitoring hardware system
with fixed vacuum systems already in use.
