Airbio One Rapid Virus

Optimize the collection of viruses and other micro-organisms in a liquid sample....


AIRBIO of TRIO.BAS is a NEW innovative portable biological air sampler, generating samples in the fluid phase for the rapid microbial analysis test methods.

The collection of micro-organisms and virus on culture media requires time for incubation before results. Instead, much faster results are obtained applying the liquid collection

The great advantage of AIRBIO is the possibility to perform two different applications:

  • Collecting viruses and other micro-organisms in a liquid sample for subsequent rapid analysis  with fast methods like qPCR, ELISA, Spectrometry,…
  • active air sampling according to the traditional method of impact on agar culture media to count colonies (CFU) 

This method has great advantages when applied in the following fields:

  • Industrial segment (pharma, agro-food, beverage, etc.) for a quick reaction in identifying the contamination
  • Military branches for notifying possible biological attacks
  • Hospitals for finding the correct pharmacological product and treatment for patients
  • Public institutes (school, restaurant, bar, metro, train, municipality buildings, etc.) for disease/pandemic monitoring.

AIRBIO RAPID-VIRUS also allows a quick assessment of the disinfection protocols' efficacy.
The instrument is the result of the European NATO project EUCLID CEPA 13 (“protection of personnel against pathogenic micro-organisms via air sampling and rapid detection and identification”).
