Dry Air Sampler for Biological or Radiological Applications
The SASS® 3100 Smart Air Sampler System is a compact, rugged microprocessor-controlled portable air sampler designed for use with state-of-the-art electret filter media. It is highly suited to the collection of biological and radioactive aerosols. In independent tests performed by third parties, it has out-performed all competitors in terms of collection efficiency and suitability.
An Industry Standard Since 2008
Since its introduction, the SASS 3100 has consistently lead the competition in independent tests.
Ideal for Field Use in Any Weather
Compact, lightweight and portable, and tough enough for use even in wet or freezing weather conditions.
