    To be connected to the air sampling system MBASS30.
    For the connection to the diaphragm pump MP 2/39 a base unit for sampling heads with hose connection is necessary.
    For air sampling on a sterile 80mm gelatine filters or disposable units.
    The filtration method is only really in evidence when handling high airborne microbe loads. In Germany, filtration is used for measurements at biological workplaces, e.g. composting plants, refuse sorting plants.
    The FA30 comes witout filter (the photo shows the adapter with a filter).
    Possible sampling media include commercially available gelatine filters in sterile disposable units (e.g. Sartorius SM 17528 - 080 - ACD).
    The use of other filter media is possible and depends on the vacuum required for operation with MBASS30.

    The preparation and evaluation of the loaded filter is described in the "Methods for determination of the mould spore concentration in the air at the workplace" in the BIA worksheet 9420. BIA is the Berufsgenossenschaftliche Institut für Arbeitsschutz (Trade Association for Industrial Safety).
