Impact Speed<20m/sec 
Battery Life after 4 hour charging depending on treatment/use) approx. 7 hours
Validation Validation work according to BS EN ISO 14698-1:2003 Annex B has shown the Oxoid Air Sampler to have a physical efficiency of 100% for particles, 0.8 to 19.0 micron in size.
(Note: validation work carried out by an independent body)
Quality CheckOxoid has a Pyramid Quality Check instrument available for routine airflow checking (EM0100P).
CalibrationUnits are despatched with traceable calibration certificates. Official guidelines state that further calibration is required every 6 and 12 months after purchase. Oxoid provide a calibration service (EM0100C).
 ServicingOxoid provide servicing for the air sampler

Other factors:
• Multi-mode option = sequential sampling (allows for representative ‘in operation’ sampling
• Delayed start option = allows operator to leave the room, minimising contamination
• Sample record downloading = CD (EM0110A) and cable (EM0111A) required, allows for compliance with cGMP regulations for data collection and traceability
• Wall/table base plate (EM0109A) available = means that unit remains at sampling site and doesn’t have to occupy work surfaces
