It has been called the 'horn', the 'megaphone', the 'funnel', and even
the 'big sucky thing'. Occasionally it is called a sample probe. Officially, it is an isokinetic sample probe. Isokinetic means that in a laminar flow area, the air flows in and around the probe without creating any turbulence. To
understand why this is important, we need to understand a fundamental
difference between micro and macro particles. While 5 µm particles may
seem infinitely small when we consider that our hair is 70 µm to 100 µm
in diameter, 5 µm particles exhibit surprising inertia compared to
submicron particles. If one were to sample without a sample probe, 5 µm
and larger particles would have to be very close to the inlet before
they would be pulled over to the inlet. However, the inlet would be
surrounded by turbulence, and the turbulent air would repel particles
that were being pulled over to the inlet. So, without an isokinetic
sample probe, we lose 5 µm particles that should be counted, whether we
are sampling in laminar flow or turbulent flow...

The FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11 defines the requirements for
electronic records to be considered reliable in a regulated industry.
The majority of CLiMET users are in regulated industries which
include pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device manufacturers and
biotech companies. In order for electronic records to be considered
reliable, the company must implement controls to insure that only
authorized users can have access to the data and that the data cannot be
altered. IT departments in regulated industries utilize strong security
policies, such as password aging, strong passwords, prevention of
duplicate users, control of file access, and control of program access.
Administrators can quickly add and remove users and change permissions.
Users can change their password once and it is good for any device on
the network that they are authorized to use. If only the particle
counters could have the same user authentication policies as the
network! Now there is a way...

lens manufacturer has ceased production of the lenses required to
replace laser diodes in Climet CI-500 Particle Counters. We have since
been informed that the stock of these lenses has now been depleted, and
as such, they can no longer be obtained. We
are now unable to replace failing laser diodes in Climet CI-500-A,
CI-500-B, CI-500-EC, CI-500-DD and CI-500-EX (Multiport) Particle
