BioHawk Plus

The BioHawk Plus is based on two technologies: the SASS collector and RAPTOR™ detector. The aerosol collector (390 LPM) transfers pathogens (size 1 to 10 micron) from sampled air into a fixed water volume for subsequent assay. The biosensor uses disposable coupons that contain wave guides. A Sample Port may be used to introduce liquid samples for analysis from external sources.
