One significant facet of many Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) microbial investigations is the assessment of the carpeting and dust in an occupied building. Carpet is listed as one of the nine potential sources of biological agents in an occupied space (Bioaerosols Assessment and Control, ACGIH 1999). IAQ complications may arise with poor carpet maintenance and accidental water incursions. Poor maintenance leads to an accumulation of microbial contaminants while water damage incidents provide the microbial organisms with moisture and the nutritional substrate to proliferate to problematic levels.
ECAN Micro-Vac carpet sampling kits are designed for sample collection of from carpets and fabrics. Each kit includes:
10 – 25mm or 37mm sampling cassettes with a 45 degree bevel fitted to the inlet port
