The Mattson-Garvin family of air samplers were first designed and manufactured in 1971. Many of the early models are still in regular use today. Design changes and upgraded components over the years have served not only to improve efficiency and to ease operation but remain a continuing commitment to stay in keeping with the demands of the industry and the end-user alike.
As commercialization of microbiology increases and diversified and as governmental regulations continually change, it is increasingly necessary to assess occupational exposure to bio arsenals.
Meaningful exposure estimates using area or environmental samplers can only be insured by the generation of data that is both precise and accurate.
The M/G range of air samplers represents a highly efficient method of generating such data, and they are designed with ease of operation as a primary factor.
These slit-to-agar impaction samplers capture a true cross-section of the bacterial content of the air or gas sampled, unlike settling plates which collect only heavier particles and whose results are adversely affected by air movement.
