The collection of micro-organisms and virus on culture media requires time for incubation before results. Instead, much faster results are obtained applying the liquid collection method. This method has great advantages when applied in the following fields: 

• Industrial segment (pharma, agro-food, beverage, etc.) for a quick reaction in identifying the contamination 

• Military branches for notifying possible biological attacks 

• Hospitals for finding the correct pharmacological product and treatment for patients 

• Public institutes (school, restaurant, bar, metro, train, municipality buildings, etc.) for disease/pandemic monitoring 

AIRBIO RAPID-VIRUS also allows a quick assessment of the disinfection protocols' efficacy. The instrument is the result of the European NATO project EUCLID CEPA 13 (“protection of personnel against pathogenic micro-organisms via air sampling and rapid detection and identification”)
