ENVI Bio Scout

ENVI BioScout™ provides a robust and sensitive bioaerosol detection solution that continuously monitors and warns for the presence of harmful airborne biological particles and collects air samples for further BWA analysis at the time of a biological alarm. ENVI BioScout™ combines three functions in a single device: continuously monitoring of ambient air, early-warning triggering for detected potential airborne biological threats including bacterial, viral and rickettsial agents and toxins and automatic air sample collection when a biological alarm is issued. ENVI BioScout™ uses fluorescence and elastic-scattering signals from 0.5 – 10 µm airborne particles which are excited with a CW laser diode at 405 nm. The system is automated and is compatible with various standard collection filters, so samples can be retrieved for provisional or confirmatory BWA analysis
