Paper Abstract

The BioCaptureTM is a handheld commercially available product for the collection and concentration of airborne particulates. Designed for use by first responders in an emergency, the BioCaptureTM allows for forensic analysis of any environment, providing a means for determining the characteristic and extent of human health threat. In the present study, the basic technologies that comprise the BioCaptureTM are discussed. Also included are presentations of data that compare the performance of the BioCaptureTM with traditional aerosol collectors.
