Nanoparticles surround us without us consciously noticing them. Because they are so small, they present certain dangers. In traffic and in polluted workplaces, certain nanoparticles can be harmful to health. Special hazards are present in:
- Public areas with heavy traffic (diesel soot)
- Soldering and welding workstations (formaldehyde, metal oxides)
- Foundries (phenols)
- Office workstations (toner dust from printers and photocopiers)
The portable testo DiSCmini particle counter measures the number concentration of nanoparticles easier than ever before.
