Copley exhibits airborne fibre monitor for first time in Europe at EAC 2009

13 July 2009; Nottingham, UK: Copley Scientific is exhibiting the new Model 7400AD real-time fibre monitor at the European Aerosol Conference (EAC 2009), on September 6-11 at the Universität Karlsruhe, Germany. Produced by MSP Corporation, Copley Scientific’s partner in North America, the 7400AD is compact and field-portable, and offers traceability to NIOSH Method 7400 for asbestos fibres. The system delivers up to eight hours of uninterrupted, automatic and fully customisable air safety monitoring.

A key analytical and safety device in manufacturing operations and asbestos removal, the Model 7400AD emits both a visible and an audible alarm when it detects user-defined concentrations of airborne fibres such as asbestos, mineral wool, advanced composites, ceramic and glass. With the help of the on-board software, the system automatically ignores non-fibrous particles and provides a count of target fibres within the user specified performance range. During monitoring the system simultaneously collects sample on standard filters for subsequent microscopic or chemical analysis.

In its partnership with MSP Corporation, Copley Scientific is a major supplier of equipment for air sampling and aerosol characterisation, in Europe. For comprehensive details of the Model 7400AD and other air sampling products, please visit
