Ultrafine nanoparticle monitors

Ultrafine nanoparticle monitors


Aerasense supplies scientific instruments to monitor ultrafine nanoparticles.

Aerasense NanoTracer is a portable device and battery powered.  The Nanotracer is a small lightweight monitor designed to be worn throughout a shift or for a day's measuring.

Handheld ultrafine nanoparticle monitor - The Philips Aerasense NanoTracer

Aerasense NanoMonitor is designed for continuous measurements and may be used unattended for several months.

Trials by leading research institutions have shown the Aerasense ultrafine particle monitors to be very reliable, and convenient to use in a variety of clean air studies.

Aerasense products use unique inventions from Philips Research, where nano particles and ultrafines have been studied intensively for many years.  Unlike traditional particle monitors, Aerasense specializes in measuring ultrafine particles smaller than 300 nanometers.  An Aerasense monitor tells the number of particles and average particle size, from which the deposited surface area and mass can be inferred.

For more information on how Aerasense monitors can help your study, please contact Philips Aerasense directly and check out our product information.

Aerasense customer makes headline news

Ultrafine particles were front page news in Holland on July 5 as Aerasense customers reported on a study conducted in the Dutch Province of Gelderland using the new Aerasense nanoparticle monitor. Measurements showed high concentrations of ultrafines in an extended traffic survey and the researchers observed that the emission filters introduced by EU regulation are having little or no effect to reduce ultrafine particle levels which they described as “life-threatening”.
