Developed in consultation with a Government Analytical testing agency, the apparatus is designed to deliver an aerosol of 3 +/- 0.3 μm mean particle size of Staphylococcus aureus challenge solution at a 28.3 L/min flow rate to a 6 stage cascade impactor with agar plates for particle sizing and quantitation.
The BFE apparatus designed by Glass Expansion provides highly efficient nebulization of the bacterial aerosol at the standard 10 μL/min challenge flow, is easy to use and is fully autoclavable to prevent cross contamination.
Part Number Description KT-1188 Bacterial Filtration Efficiency Test Kit Bacterial Filtration Efficiency Test Kit Contents Nebulizer Aerosol Chamber Priming valve Syringe Pump for precision delivery of Challenge Solution Stand Assembly with Quick Release mechanism High Precision Syringe Drive Pump Pneumatic Module with Digital Flow Meters 6 Stage Cascade Impactor with vacuum pump 6 covered petri dishes
All Glass Expansion concentric glass nebulizers feature our unique VitriCone capillary construction delivering you the best possible manufacturing precision.
Glass Expansion is the only manufacturer that takes thick walled constant-bore tubing and machines the outside to a uniform aerodynamic shape. This guarantees a uniform sample channel, assuring tolerance to high matrix samples and perfect reproducibility.
We have applied this technology along with over 30 years of nebulizer design expertise, to develop a version of our popular MicroMist nebulizer specifically for nebulization of bacterial aerosol.

With proper nebulizer maintenance you can prolong the performance and lifetime of your Glass Expansion nebulizer.
Our Eluo nebulizer cleaning tool is designed to efficiently deliver a cleaning solution through the nebulizer capillary to dislodge particle build-up and thoroughly clean the nebulizer.
We suggest using the Eluo regularly to maintain nebulizer performance and prolong nebulizer life.
We have found that using a dilute concentration of Fluka RBS-25 is the best cleaning solution. Stubborn clogs may require an overnight soak or additional cleaning with nitric acid.

If there are salt deposits that cannot be removed with the Eluo, we recommend the following procedure:
* Warm water only recommended for use with glass or quartz nebulizers.
For an informative video on nebulizer maintenance using the Eluo, please refer to our instruction video, ‘ ICP Nebulizer Maintenance Made Easy’.
The apparatus designed by Glass Expansion has been a pleasure to use. Connections were made easy with the supplied parts. The nebulizer is easy to take in and out of the top cap, which is required frequently for purging. The stand is sturdy and easy to use... The end caps are easy to disassemble, facilitating cleaning.
