Japanese translation:アンダーセンサンプラー
Explanation:
From http://www.epa.gov/ttnamti1/files/ambient/inorganic/iocompen...

Method IO-2.2 Sampling of Ambient Air for PM
Using an *Andersen Dichotomous Sampler*

Doing a search on "dichotomous samplers" didn't provide any relevant results for Japanese (only found a translation for Chinese). I knew the term "sampler" was the katakana 「サンプラー」 but I couldn't figure out what dichotomous (which is usually 二分) was in this context (二分サンプラー brings no hits on Google).

I think that this is the term used in Japanese based on the brand name(?) of the machine.
