The NIOSH N6 sampler meets A.C.G.I.H. specifications for bio-aerosol sampling and analysis. The N6 sampler collects airborne micro-organisms in such applications as indoor air quality studies, filter and cleanroom efficiency studies, pharmaceutical production, animal care laboratories, food processing areas and any environment in which contamination must be controlled. Collection is simple.

Place a standard petri dish (100 x 15mm) in the instrument and draw an air sample. The petri dish contains a medium appropriate for the microorganisms expected. Remove the dish and forward it to a laboratory of your choice. The lab will incubate and count and identify the micro-organisms. The N6 sampler is supplied with carrying case and can also be supplied with a line-operated sampling pump.

The N6 Single-Stage Microbial Sampler rents with pump, rotometer, tubing, isopropyl alcohol, case and operating manual.
