ImpactAir® Technology

Air is drawn at high speed through a very narrow inlet slit, whereupon particles, including microbes in the air, impact and stick onto an agar surface in a Petri dish.

The Petri dish is slowly rotated under the inlet thus ensuring the air is always ‘impacted’ onto a fresh area of agar. This dramatically reduces the probability of ‘twin impingement‘, a phenomena where two microbes land at the same point and appear as a single colony when incubated – this is an issue associated with sieve type samplers.

ImpactAir® high performance slit-to-agar microbial air sampler

The ImpactAir® range uses the larger 14 cm Petri dishes which allow the system to sample for longer periods onto a single dish. The sampling time is programmable from minutes to many hours. With a deep fill agar plate it is possible to sample for several hours onto a single agar plate. Sampling 1 m3 is achieved in 35 minutes and 20 seconds with the flow rate of 1 cubic foot per minute.

The pharmaceutical industry strives to standardise methods across all of its processes but often it is difficult to find a single solution. The ImpactAir® has a modular design and can, using the same fundamental technology and performance validation, be adapted into a range of formats to suit the specific deployment needs.

ImpactAir ISO is a modular system designed to integrate into isolators or RABS, using an external controller and remotely located air mover. It can be designed in almost any orientation using standard or custom made connections.

Product category: Controls / Standards / Calibrators - Microbiology


Pinpoint Scientific Limited design and manufacture microbial environmental monitoring equipment designed to meet the demanding requirements of the pharmaceutical, healthcare and specialist food industry markets. Our core products are microbial air samplers and monitors that direct airborne microbial particles onto agar which is then incubated so that identification of the organism can be carried out. We also produce a surface sampler to aid compliance with the relevant ISO standards as well as a number of cleanroom accessories.

Be confident in the consistency of your environmental monitoring with the Contact Plate Applicator. Made up of three key parts—(a) plate holder, (b) weight and (c) the timer—the applicator can be operated with the weight attached for surface sampling and without the weight attached for personnel sampling. The Contact Plate Applicator meets ISO 18593 for surface sampling: the total weight is 500g +/- 5g and the timer is 10 sec. +/- 0.1 sec.
