Can we help you?

The AEROTRAK™ 9306 Handheld Particle Counter offers the most features and flexibility for customers interested in versatile handheld particle contamination monitoring. The Model 9306 features an ergonomic handle with thumb controls, for easy one-hand operation. The 3.6-inch (9.1-cm) color touch screen interface makes it easy to configure and operate. The Model 9306 can generate Pass/Fail reports for ISO 14644-1, EU GMP Annex 1, and FS209E. The internal memory can store up to 10,000 sample records of particle count data which can be conveniently viewed on screen, downloaded using TRAKPRO™ Lite Software, or printed directly to an optional external printer.

Multiple AeroTrak 9306 particle counter configurations can be conveniently stored and uploaded as needed using the TrakPro Lite Secure data download and reporting software supplied as standard.

The Model 9306 complies with all the stringent requirements set forth in ISO 21501-4. These particle counters are calibrated with NIST traceable PSL spheres using TSI’s world-class Classifier and Condensation Particle Counters, the recognized standard for particle measurements. Backed with a standard two-year warranty and TSI’s long-standing reputation for high quality, there are no other handheld particle counters like it on the market today.
