Title
(DE) VORRICHTUNG UND VERFAHREN ZUM SAMMELN UND ANALYSIEREN VON LUFTORGANISMEN
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR CAPTURING AND ANALYSING AIRBORNE ORGANISMS
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE CAPTURE ET D'ANALYSE D'ORGANISMES EN SUSPENSION DANS L'AIR
Abstract
(EN) The present invention refers to a device comprising polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) filters and the use of the same for collecting, detecting and identifying organisms present in air ecosystems. The invention also provides a method suitable for the capture, detection and identification of whole airborne biological particles, including viruses and other important air pathogens, which involves the use of the device. This method allows toperform organism, preferably viral, metagenomics to sequence all DNA and RNA organisms captured in the filters. This methodology may be used to detect, for instance, SARS-CoV2 particles in air samples.
