Abstract
The construction and subsequent modification of a large volume air sampler (cyclone scrubber) from blueprints obtained from the U.S. Army Biological Defence Research Laboratory, Fort Detrick, Md. is reported. The instrument samples air at the rate of 780 litres per minute and is capable of collecting airborne particles in the 1 to 5 micron size range. Airborne particles are concentrated, in a small cyclone chamber, into a few millilitres of collection fluid. Production of the sampler from several different materials is described as is the procedure for operational decontamination of the instrument. Blueprints are included.
