New microbial air sampler addresses continuous monitoring

14 Nov 2019

The device supports the new EU GMP Annex 1 requirements.

Cherwell Laboratories, specialist suppliers of environmental monitoring and process validation solutions for the pharmaceutical and related industries has launched its latest addition to the ImpactAir microbial air sampler range, which aims to support the new EU GMP Annex 1 requirements for continuous environmental monitoring (EM).

Cherwell, distributors of the ImpactAir range of microbial air samplers from Pinpoint Scientific, will be displaying the prototype of the new ImpactAir ISO-90 Monitoring Platform on their stand. ImpactAir is designed for continuous monitoring in high-grade areas, where in-process sampling of viable particles is often critical. The ImpactAir ISO is a modular system designed to integrate into isolators or RABS, using an external controller and remotely located air mover.

The new ImpactAir ISO model can be designed in almost any orientation using standard or custom-made connections. The ISO-90-Monitoring Head features a chamber for 90mm agar plates and a highly efficient slit to agar sampling method to give highly reliable and consistent results. The low D50 value and ability to sample for long periods makes the ISO-90 ideal for continuous monitoring as demanded by the Annex 1 revision.

Andy Whittard, Managing Director at Cherwell commented, “We are really excited about the latest developments from Pinpoint and feel the ImpactAir ISO-90 will address a key requirement within pharma EM. That is to achieve higher sample volume within grade A environments and minimise risk in these critical zones. Further developments to the ISO-90 range promise to make installation within existing facilities easy.”
