The Diffusion Size Classifier miniature DiSCmini is a handheld sensor for the measurement of nanoparticle number, average diameter and lung-deposited surface area LDSA with a time resolution of up to 1 second (1 Hz). The measuring principle is based on electrical charging of the aerosols. The...
Among the many different parameters that determine the quality or, more generally speaking, the properties of an environment, the presence of micrometer sized, or even smaller, particles is for sure one of the most important.
The particles may be suspended in air or in a fluid, and may be polluting or potentially aggressive agents. No matter if they are dangerous for the health or for the preservation of objects, it is necessary to employ pieces of equipment able to rapidly and accurately measure their concentration and dimension.
