ATHINA® Detector Collector Series

ATHINA® Detector Collectors are an integrated particle detection and collection system that provides early warning of biological threats in homeland security, public health, and military applications. They contain a continuously operating detector which triggers a collector and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications. The improved TAC-BIO technology was originally developed by the US Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center who used ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UVLEDs) for reagent-less detection of airborne biological particles.
