Dycor Slit Sampler

Slit to Agar Sampler

Sampling biological particles in the air has just gotten easier and more reliable. The slit-to-agar sampling instrument has long been the standard benchmark for biological aerosol sampling. As an active monitoring impaction aerosol sampler, Dycor’s slit sampler provides the high quality results that you can count on. The Dycor slit sampler collects airborne microorganisms through a high accuracy slit onto standard 150mm agar plates, and is effective in many different applications, including defense, R&D, medical, food, or pharmaceutical.

With over 20 years of experience in providing test and evaluation equipment and services for field, chamber and laboratory environments, Dycor developed the slit sampler to improve its function and usability over previous generation samplers. Our goal was to leverage our experience working with these devices into the design and manufacture of the most reliable and user-friendly slit sampler ever produced.
