Microbial sampler


The CI-99 has a stainless steel enclosure. It is an active air microbial sampler deployed in a fixed location, and generally used for monitoring isolators, RABS, and Biological Safety Cabinets (BSCs).

The CI-99 is able to accommodate either industry standard 90 mm petri dishes, or RODAC plates; and is available in either 25 LPM, 1 CFM, or 100 LPM flow rates. The lower flow rates of 25 LPM or 1 CFM are recommended for continuous monitoring applications. Testing has confirmed that up to 3 hours (possibly longer) of continuous sampling with a custom agar fill of 40mL in a 90 mm petri dish is possible. Independent validation is recommended.

The Climet CI-99 microbial sampler is designed and built with the same ruggedness that users have come to expect from Climet particle counters. It is the only pharmaceutical grade microbial air sampler that meets and exceeds all requirements AND recommendations of ISO 14698, as well as augmented by requirements in ISO 21501-4.

Experts in industrial instrumentation manufacturing, every new Climet instrument design is “drop and vibration” tested. This ensures that end users can expect up to a decade (and beyond) of reliable operation. This level of ruggedized testing is unique among other manufacturers, and ensures accidents don’t turn into capital appropriation requests or expensive repair bills.

The CI-99 microbial sampler is VHP compatible.
