The solution Tecniplast presented is an accurate environmental microbiological monitoring in IVCs, which represent a new frontier to monitor the hygienic state of laboratory animals with a highly sensitive solution for the collection of contaminated dust particles. In addition, the removal of biological samples from the IVC occurs in a contamination-free manner enabling the safe transfer of the sample from the microbiological unit under investigation to the laboratory.

The product is simple, cheap, efficient and validated on Mouse Norovirus (MNV), a difficult microbiological agent to detect in the environment. Made of two parts, a stainless steel frame purposely designed to allocate a second piece of equipment, an irradiated cardboard folder containing a sliding filter, INTERCEPTOR (patent pending) is the Tecniplast answer to the need of animal free microbiological monitoring. Retrofittable for all our air handling units is well accepted by the main diagnostic laboratories performing PCR on rodents’ agents.
