Monitoring nano particles to sizes as low as 10 nm the Partector uses a diffusion charge technology to detect particles too small for optical or mass based methods. The output is in lung deposited surface area (LDSA) in m2/cm3. This is an important property of these small particles as its thought that they transport toxins on their surface deep into the lung and bloodstream. The particles are so small they have little measurable mass so by inducing an electrical charge on their surface and subsequently detecting that charge we can detect their presence and determine their surface area. Partector is battery operated and can be used as a fixed or portable monitoring system.
They say your home is where the heart is. Just like the heart, the home needs a tracker to know whether it is healthy or not. The uHoo indoor air quality sensor acts like a fitness tracker for your home’s indoor air quality. It has nine sensors – making it the most advanced indoor air quality sensor – that measure temperature, humidity, particulate matter (PM2.5), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide, and air pressure.
Indoor air can be up to ten times more dangerous than outdoor air, according to EPA. Most people spend 90% of their time indoors, and not monitoring the air quality can have negative short and long-term effects on the health, productivity, and even sleep quality. Short-term health effects are usually headaches, dizziness, and irritation. These symptoms will usually disappear when the sources of indoor air pollution are eliminated. That’s why having an indoor air quality sensor like uHoo can help in identifying these sources.
