SAS Super Pinocchio II has been created for the microbiological control of air and other compressed gases used in the pharmaceutical and food industries plus other critical fields. The compressed gas is connected directly to the instrument
The instrument requires no external power supply because, using the pressure of the gas line to control, it conveys the same gas on the agar plate playing the “impact on agar” approach described in section 1116 of the USP Pharmacopoeia.

Pinocchio Super II is a microbial impaction sampler to test the microbiological quality of compressed air and gases used in Clean Room. A compressed air source is connected to the Pinocchio Super II system and the flow meter regulated to achieve the required flow rate, e.g.: 100 litres of air / minute. The sampling period is timed to obtain the required total sample volume, e.g. 1000 litres.
