TSI introduces BioTrak particle counter for cleanrooms


Using a patented fluorescence detection technology

BioTrak Real-Time Viable Particle Counter

The BioTrak Real-Time Viable Particle Counter for monitoring pharmaceutical cleanroom facilities detects airborne viable particles using a patented fluorescence detection technology based on TSI Incorporated’s 20 years’ experience of biological threat detection instrumentation. By minimising false positives, the BioTrak particle counter delivers more confidence in instant detection and identification of viable particles to quality assurance professionals.

In addition, the BioTrak measures traditional airborne particle counts at 1.0 CFM, fully compliant with ISO-21501-4. The instrument simultaneously displays and data logs viable and non-viable airborne particle counts. The BioTrak particle counter provides end users with meaningful data to detect unwanted events and support investigations into their root causes.

TSI’s president, Tom Kennedy, said: “We’re excited to announce the launch of the BioTrak particle counter, which incorporates TSI’s patented fluorescence technology, to the underserved market for accurate, real-time viable detection in life science cleanrooms.”

As an industry leader in the design and production of precision instruments, TSI Incorporated partners research institutions and customers around the world to set the standard for measurements relating to aerosol science, air flow, health and safety, indoor air quality, fluid dynamics and biohazard detection. With headquarters in the US and field offices throughout Europe and Asia, TSI has established a worldwide presence.
