Rapid Reader—Rapid Microbial Detection System

Aire~SECURE is a patented rapid microbial detection sensor that facilitates remote monitoring of airborne pathogens (bacteria, yeasts and molds) and revolutionizes the approach to pathogen detection and control.


The Aire~SECURE Rapid Reader significantly shortens contamination detection times and automates the sampling, monitoring and detection process. The sensor is connected to the cloud-based monitoring and alert system so you can receive alerts whenever contamination is detected.

  • Low cost wireless installation
  • No incubation or analysis period

  • Less intervention

  • Detection specificity

  • Continuous cloud-based monitoring

  • Traditional presentation of results

  • Isolation of contamination sources with multiple monitored points

The RAPID Reader has been engineered to periodically draw a sample of ambient air into the accompanying cartridge, where spores and microbes present in the air have time to settle on the nutrient-rich detection site. Optical density measurements on growth facilitation media determine if microbial contamination is present.

Cartridge System

  • Cartridges are designed to be easily exchanged without risk of contamination.
  • Cartridges are tailored to detect specific pathogens.
