We all can recall our mothers telling us as children to go outside and get some fresh air. Who would have known just how important this statement was and is today? Air pollution affects the entire planet. You can't escape it anywhere not even inside your home or office. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be up to ten times more polluted than outside air.
There has been a heightened awareness for indoor air quality in both office and residential environments. The need for particle counters to monitor indoor air quality is likely to increase dramatically over the next several years. This forecast is due to the increased investments by pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms and by the global adaptation of ISO standards. Finally, there has been an increase in the requirements for particulate-free air in many manufacturing applications.
