Research Institution
An Electrospray Collector of Aerosol Contaminants or ECAC is proposed. The ability of electrospray ionization to perform as a getter of airborne contaminants offers a new means of CBW agent collection for widespread battlefield use. Sampler is capable ofcollecting all polar species, including spores and viruses, while ignoring background air. Concept offers an inexpensive, lightweight, small, and virtually silent means of personal CBW agent exposure collection that is compatible with military MOPP gear.Aerosol collector offers means of sampling airborne contaminats, allergens, and particulate media in buildings. Concept may be employed to allow long term exposure evaluation of personnel to toxic agents by DoD, USPO, and for individual use.
