Rapid-E is the world’s first instrument to accurately and comprehensively analyze single aerosol particles in real time. Fully automated, it characterizes any airborne particle in the range of 0.5-100 micrometers, matching and opening up numerous applications in environmental monitoring, and beyond. Rapid-E has a robust design that ensures its continuous use both outside and indoors.

The instrument continuously monitors ambient air, instantly counting and characterizing different pollen species, spores, and even air pollutants, such as PM2.5, PM10 and certain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The proprietary technology enables rapid species recognition, providing a good understanding of atmospheric aerosol concentrations and their influence on public health and the environment.
