Now it's possible to identify SARS-CoV-2 with the In-Air Pathogen Surveillance Solution

Environmental and occupational surveillance with air sampling complements the insight you already gain from individual testing, enabling you to better assess the safety of air quality within facilities for communities.

The Thermo Scientific AerosolSense Sampler, a new pathogen surveillance solution, is designed to deliver timely and highly reliable insight into in-air pathogen presence, including Flu A/B, SARS-CoV-2, and/or RSV, for monitoring air quality and improving facility safety protocols. Confidently help protect employees and communities while maintaining business and operational continuity.

What facilities could benefit from this solution?

Enable early decision making for manufacturing, offices, schools/universities, healthcare/hospitals, nursing homes and a number of indoor facilities.

Simple and quick workflow

  1. Designed with the user in mind, the sampler is lightweight for portability and requires minimal operator training.
  2. Remove and replace the cartridge—After the sampling cycle is over, remove the sample cartridge and transfer it to a biohazard bag to send it to a laboratory.
  3. Validated for Flu A/B, SARS-CoV-2, and RSV-B, the design is intended to capture a wide variety of in-air pathogens.


The pathogen surveillance solution was designed by keeping users’ needs in mind. It requires only minimal operator training.

Powerful system capabilities

Highly stable and sensitive aerosol collection and separation technology offers reliable performance across a wide range of environments.


The sampler design was validated for the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen and is meant to capture many different in-air pathogens.
