Air Monitors has launched the Naneos ‘Partector 2’ – a handheld device for occupational exposure measurements, aerosol research and outdoor air quality monitoring. Using dual non-contact detection stages the Partector 2 measures lung deposited surface area (LDSA), particle number concentration and average particle diameter.

Traditional methods for measuring airborne particulate matter measure particle mass per unit air volume, usually with an upper size limit of x microns (PMx etc.). However, from a human health perspective, the particles of most interest are those that penetrate deep into the lungs; an application for which the Partector 2 is ideal.

In comparison with traditional nanoparticle detectors, the main advantages of the Partector 2 are that it provides all three measurements simultaneously, in a compact, lightweight instrument with a rechargeable battery that typically operates for 24 hours.

With a short warm-up time, the instrument can start monitoring in just 30 seconds. It also features a colour display for live graphical readings and has a high concentration alarm. Data are stored on a removable µ-SD card with enough space for years of data.
