BioTOF™ z200

A Comprehensive Bio-Threat Solution for Critical Infrastructure 

The BioTOF™ z200 comprehensive bio-aerosol detection system is intended for continuous operation in critical infrastructure, operating unattended for months at a time. The system includes a UV LIF trigger sensor and a MALDI time-of-flight mass spectrometer for threat identification. Once triggered, the autonomous threat identification process proceeds, which includes aerosol sampling, sample preparation, sample analysis and data analysis. Where possible, the BioTOF™ z200 is configured to communicate with the building management system to protect unexposed sections of the building by actively controlling the ventilation system. The system automatically resets itself for the next trigger, and is designed for rapid integration into third-party command and control systems and architectures.

A forensics sample can be collected as a laboratory reference sample using an (optional) fully-integrated dry filter unit. The sampler is activated when the trigger signal is received.
