Pollen and other aerosol particles

SwisensPoleno’s artificial intelligence uses a pre-filter to separate different particle categories. In this short blog article, we explain what the prefilter for automatic pollen identification is all about. In doing so, we answer the following question: How can SwisensPoleno distinguish pollen from other aerosol particles?

How to analyze aerosol data from real-time measurement

The latest technologies allow the measurement and monitoring of aerosol particles in real time. A measuring system continuously draws in air and measures and identifies the particles it contains. This is also the case with the measurement systems from Swisens. In this article, we will show you one way to analyze aerosol data from real-time measurements using our measurement systems and software solutions.

“I speak on behalf of my colleagues who are Urban Observatory Principal Investigators and Research Collaborators from the University of Manchester that we have rarely seen, or been provided with such exemplary support as that provided by Swisens. Swisens customer support has been remarkable given the current situation, from remote training and commissioning to rapid support for hardware and software tools specific to our needs to extremely well organised seminars that actually focus on customer feedback and needs. In particular we have been impressed with the Swisens open source data approach and their attention to different users specific needs. Swisens technical innovations has already generated enormous interest in a bioaerosol-aerobiology community that until recently has been limited with respect to real-world and near real-time detection and importantly quantification of airborne bioaerosol concentrations. Their approach has developed significant rapport with multi-disciplinary researchers and Swisens should be lauded for this.”

Research Professor
Atmospheric Composition Research Department
Finnish Meteorological Institute

“The Finnish Meteorological Institute is very satisfied with the cooperation of Swisens AG. The agreed research and development programme is progressing well and mutual openness and collaborative atmosphere strongly supports it. Swisens participated in a workshop and supported the scientists in recording the test data based on the cooperation agreement. A particular outcome of the workshop was a new procedure for the calibration of real-time monitoring systems based on the SwisensAtomizer. It has been proven to deliver cleaner results than the approaches tried so far in different countries. FMI is very satisfied with cooperation of Swisens AG. Our suggestions regarding software tools were quickly accepted and implemented by Swisens engineers. We are indeed happy to work with Swisens and start opening real-time data to professionals in Finland.”

“Being able to aerosolize different powder samples in the lab to perform experiments related to occupational health has been one of our challenges. With the SwisensAtomizer at hand, we now have a small device which helps us to produce a stable dust atmosphere to load filters in a consistent manner, serving as calibration filters for later analysis. Swisens AG has always shown great support concerning our demands on the SwisensAtomizer. We are delighted to collaborate with Swisens AG.”
