Product Information


Zephyr is a pathogen identifier using CANARY™ detection technology to screen for pathogens in powder and liquid samples, producing rapid and accurate results.

Zephyr users have access to an entire library of biosensors, which can be used in a wide variety of sectors from bio-defence to agriculture and food safety (amongst others). Results can be obtained in as little as 2 minutes, with the longest waiting time of 15 minutes.

Zephyr versatility means that it can be configured for operation on a lab bench or out in the field. Our Zephyr kit includes a touchscreen laptop complete with all necessary detection software, a bench mount box, a Berthold Sirius luminometer, mini-centrifuge, PowerUSB relay box, and a barcode reader, as well as their connecting cables and power cords.
