Indoor air quality (IAQ) studies show that high levels of airborne dust can have a serious impact on the immune systems of even healthy people. But until now, air particle monitoring has been so expensive that only companies with critical clean air requirements could afford it.
Hans Wyssen, from Technology Care LLC, explains: “Even though DustCheck HOME is affordable, it has advantages over laser particle counters costing thousands of dollars, since dust concentrations are measured during an entire week. Also, the DustCheck report lets you know where you stand, since test results are compared with averages in our data-base. The report also includes helpful tips on lowering indoor particle levels.”
DustCheck HOME warns of:
- High levels of airborne bacteria, microfibers, mold and fine dust (PM10).
- Dirty air filters, ventilation ducts and damaged vapor seals.
- Airborne contamination from construction, roads and factories.
How DustCheck HOME works: An electrostatic air sampler collects airborne dust for one week and then is sent in for analysis. A few days later, test results can be viewed and downloaded from http://www.dustcheck.com using the ID and Password provided in the test kit.
DustCheck PROFESSIONAL is available for continuous monitoring of commercial environments. This system provides advanced particle analysis as well as particle logging so that trends can be identified. DustCheck PROFESSIONAL is widely used in data centers, cleanrooms, offices, factories, hotels and hospitals.
Hans Wyssen explains: " DustCheck PROFESSIONAL records all particle events including those caused by fire suppression gas bursts, smoke and renovation work. It also records levels of specific particle types such as microfibers and biological particulate. DustCheck PROFESSIONAL reassures people of your high cleanliness standards, but also encourages personnel to be more careful, knowing that all particle events will be recorded."
DustCheck is produced by Technology Care LLC of Zurich, Switzerland. The company provides environmental services to an international client base, which includes some of the world’s largest corporations including IBM, UBS Bank, Zurich Insurance, Novartis and many others.
