Title
(EN) AIR SAMPLING METHOD, DEVICE AND SYSTEM FOR MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS
(FR) PROCEDE, DISPOSITIF ET SYSTEME DE PRELEVEMENT D'AIR POUR UNE ANALYSE MICROBIOLOGIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a method using an air suction device, which consists in providing the apparatus with a movable sampling head (4), using a Petri dish (3) containing a culture medium (30), the dish being arranged inside the head, and sucking in the air through the head so that it impinges on the culture medium, characterized in that the head is replaced after each sampling operation. The invention also concerns a device for implementing said method comprising a disposable head (4), in particular a head which must be destroyed to perform the analysis. Such a device is particularly adapted to be used in a sampling system set up in a fixed station in an industrial plant, a white room, a workstation or an operating area.
(FR)
Procédé tel que l'on utilise un appareil pour aspirer l'air, on équipe l'appareil d'une tête de prélèvement (4) amovible, on utilise une boîte de Pétri (3) contenant un milieu de culture (30), boîte qui est disposée à l'intérieur de la tête, on aspire l'air au travers de la tête pour venir l'impacter sur le milieu de culture, caractérisé en ce que l'on remplace la tête entre chaque prélèvement. Un dispositif pour mettre en œuvre un tel procédé comprend une tête (4) à usage unique, notamment une tête qui doit être détruite pour procéder à l'analyse. Un tel dispositif est particulièrement adapté à être utilisé dans un système de prélèvement installé à poste fixe dans une installation industrielle, une salle blanche, un poste de travail ou un bloc opératoire.
