Aerosol Devices Inc. was founded in 2014 in Fort Collins, Colorado by two professional women in aerosols. Our primary goal is to bring to market advanced aerosol collector technology developed by Dr. Susanne Hering and her creative team of scientists at Aerosol Dynamics Inc. (Berkeley, CA). Over the past five years, research prototypes were developed to collect uninterrupted, time-resolved, concentrated samples of ambient aerosol particles in the field for chemical analysis in the lab. Collecting high quality particle samples for laboratory analysis is a fundamental element of many aerosol research programs. We serve the global aerosol research community and the neighborhoods where we work, live, and play by being good stewards of the environment, volunteering for causes we believe in, and providing new employment opportunities.
Recently a collection module has been developed to efficiently deposit particles into liquid forming concentrated particle suspensions. Variations of the collector prototypes are used in creating colloidal particle concentration standards, studying combustion soot particles, purifying protein samples, and much more.
A grant from the National Institutes of Health (1 RC3 ES019081-01) funded the collector development. Please check out the Reference section to read more about the early development, performance, and field sampling results.
Both of the company’s founders, Ms. Pat Keady and Dr. Susanne Hering, are past Presidents of the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) and leaders in the field with numerous aerosol measurement patents and publications. With a strong business and engineering background, Ms. Keady serves as the company CEO/President. Dr. Hering contributes as a technical adviser to the company while continuing her role as President of Aerosol Dynamics Inc., a very successful and well-respected R&D firm.
Our mission is to offer superior aerosol measurement capabilities that advance scientific knowledge, which can lead to improving the environment, health, safety, and quality of life.
Customers are our number one priority. Happy customers become return customers, give referrals to their friends, pay our bills, and allow us to keep going.
We will make decisions every day to ensure that we meet or exceed our customer’s high expectations. When we fall short, we will respond immediately to make it right.
Employees create quality, which generates customers. By offering a safe and productive work environment, tools to do a quality job, interesting products and career development opportunities, we will be an employer of choice and able to attract the best talent.
We serve the global aerosol research community and the neighborhoods where we work, live, and play by being good stewards of the environment, volunteering for causes we believe in, and providing new employment opportunities. Healthy communities attract the finest people, some of whom will become customers, collaborators, employees, suppliers, mentors, and friends.
As long as we focus on our top four priorities, our shareholders will be fine.
