AirPrep Cub Sampler



The AirPrep Cub Sampler efficiently captures micron- and submicron-sized particles.

SKU: ACD210 Categories: ,


The AirPrep Cub Sampler efficiently captures micron- and submicron-sized particles, including viruses, bacteria, pollen, molds and fungal spores, as well as non-biological particles from 0.01um to 10um+.

The AirPrep Cub Sampler uses a dry electret filter as the collection media. Electret filters develop an electrical charge when air flows past them. This substantially increases the collection efficiency of the filter allowing efficient collection of the smallest diameter viruses which is a limitation of most competing collectors.

This is a new, compact model of the Bobcat Air Sampler, trusted by researchers and US military since 2012.

AirPrep is manufactured by InnovaPrep. Their patented sampling and sample preparation technology allows you to monitor the presence of biological targets in your environment or products faster and with greater sensitivity.


  • Efficiently captures micron, and submicron particles – optimized for 0.01 μm to 10.0 μm that can be immediately recovered with InnovaPrep’s Wet Foam Elution™ method.
  • Originally designed for ”tactical” military bio surveillance applications, the Bobcat’s rugged design can handle nearly any environment.
  • Field ready with long-life battery and tripod.
  • Variable run modes to balance sample duration and battery conservation.
  • Flow rates up to 200 LPM.
  • Dry filter collection media is suitable for extreme temperatures — unlike wet cyclonic or agar-type air samplers.
  • Compatible with virtually any analysis method, including PCR, sequencing and more.
