The BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier — A rapid, biological aerosol collection & identification system.
PathSensors’ BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier is rugged, highly-portable and incorporates a high-volume, high-performance aerosol sampler for indoor/outdoor applications.
Incorporating the CANARY® technology, the BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier provides rapid, sensitive and specific identification of up to 21 biological threat agents. The portable and compact BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier offers breakthrough capabilities in sampling performance, reliability and operational cost.
Technology You Can Count On
The BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier uses proprietary aerosol collection technology and MIT Lincoln Labs developed CANARY® detection technology to offer a complete, stand-alone solution for biological identification. The BioFlash-E® provides a low-risk, cost-effective solution to biological sampling and identification.
CANARY® technology has been tested at Dugway Proving Ground, ECBC and Battelle Memorial Labs. The technology has been validated through its use in a government building security biomonitoring system.
The BioFlash-E® Delivers Efficiency, Value, Portability, Speed and Convenience
• Integral aerosol sampling capability for high-efficiency sample collection
• Particle collection of 1-10 micron size particles
• Proven technology

Portability and Convenience — Ergonomic Design Makes the
BioFlash-E® the Easiest-to-Use Identifier on the Market
PathSensors has designed the BioFlash-E® with the assistance of end-users and industrial designers to provide portability, ease-of-use, low maintenance and user safety. The BioFlash-E® Biological Identifier’s balanced design is lightweight and rugged to survive today’s toughest environments. With enlarged, sealed pushbuttons and an expansive display screen, the BioFlash-E® is easy to set up, use and decontaminate while wearing Personal Protective Equipment.
The BioFlash-E® utilizes the BioDisc™, a unique disposable integrated collection, reagent storage and test chamber. The operator simply inserts the BioDisc™ and the BioFlash-E® automatically collects and identifies up to 21 potentially hazardous biological agents. The simple and safe “remove and replace” procedure takes less than 2 minutes to complete, requiring minimal user training.
