The BioFlash® Biological Identifier is a bio-aerosol collection and identification system. It uses CANARY™ technology along with proprietary aerosol collection techniques to provide a low-risk, cost-effective biological sampling and identification solution.
The BioFlash Biological Identifier provides rapid, sensitive and specific identification of various diseases and common biothreat agents including anthrax, ricin, botulinum toxin, black plague, tularemia, smallpox, or foodborne pathogens including listeria and salmonella.
The high performance aerosol sampler of the BioFlash is portable, durable and capable of taking high sample volumes in short periods of time. These capabilities allow for both indoor and outdoor applications, so air quality can be tested quickly and easily wherever you are. The BioFlash can also be configured as a stand-alone device, used in tiered detection architectures to include a trigger and confirmatory sampler, or as an integrated component subsystem.
The portable, compact and easy to use BioFlash Biological Identifier offers breakthrough capabilities in sampling performance. The BioFlash operates using BioDisk consumables that contain genetically engineered biosensors, expressing both the agent-specific antibodies and the calcium-sensitive bioluminescent molecules that are needed to produce light emission. Each BioDisk contains sixteen cuvettes with different agent-specific biosensors in specific cuvettes. This allows more than one agent of interest to be detected and identified.
