In-Air Pathogen Surveillance Solution

Next-level confidence, safety, and reliability

Leaders of organizations large and small, from the national to the local level, are confronted by a vast array of new and urgent questions. How do we re-open safely? Are cleaning procedures appropriate and effective? Where are the high risk areas?

Environmental and occupational surveillance with air sampling complements the insight you already gain from individual testing, enabling you to better assess the safety of air quality within facilities for communities.

The Thermo Scientific AerosolSense Sampler, a new pathogen surveillance solution, is designed to deliver timely and highly reliable insight into in-air pathogen presence, including Flu A/B, SARS-CoV-2, and/or RSV A/B, for monitoring air quality and improving facility safety protocols. Confidently help protect employees and communities while maintaining business and operational continuity.
