Game changing Ground Level Ozone Gas Sensor detection from 1 ppb to 500 ppb with 1 ppb resolution now shipping.
San Diego — (October 6, 2020) –AerNos, an innovator in nano gas sensors, is now shipping a game-changing wearable device for air pollution detection and research first showcased during CES 2018 on Good Morning America’s CES coverage. Called AerBandTM Research, the wearable or clip-able device will revolutionize how scientific studies track and study human exposure to harmful air pollutants.
Scientists, physicians and researchers have long been aware of the connection between air pollution and human health but have been stifled by current air quality monitoring capabilities. AerNos has leveraged advances in nanotechnology, engineering and data science to develop a low-cost nano gas sensor able to detect multiple gases simultaneously to parts-per-billion levels. This will enable scientists, for the first time, to monitor 24/7 individual exposures to toxic gases in research and enable consumers to take steps to reduce or avoid exposures and the health impacts that come with exposure.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ground level Ozone in the air we breathe can harm our health. People most at risk from breathing air containing ozone include people with asthma, children, older adults, and people who are active outdoors, especially outdoor workers. In addition, people with certain genetic characteristics, and people with reduced intake of certain nutrients, such as vitamins C and E, are at greater risk from ozone exposure.
Breathing Ozone can trigger a variety of health problems including chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and airway inflammation. It also can reduce lung function and harm lung tissue. Ozone can worsen bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma, leading to increased medical care. Ozone exposure has been associated with increase emergency room visits, years of life lost and premature deaths.
“AerBand Research is a breakthrough that will lead to better answers to the most urgent questions I’m hearing from parents everyday – what pollutants are we exposed too, what matters and how do we avoid them,” said Christopher Gavigan, Founder and CEO of Prima, Honest Company Co-Founder and AerNos Advisor. “Air pollution monitoring today does not tell me what I’m breathing right here, right now. It significantly limits health research and our ability to take action. AerBand is about to change that.”
AerBand Research is designed to be worn or attached via clip for always-on air pollution monitoring. AerNos’ nano gas sensor technology enables simultaneous detection of multiple indoor and outdoor airborne toxins to ppb levels. AerBand pairs with an end user App for tracking real-time pollution levels, historical information and for accessing recommended actions. Organizations access data via the AerBand Data Cloud website – including detailed air pollution readings from multiple research participants.
“For the first time ever, the world of researchers will be able to monitor 24/7 personal exposure to Ozone and correlate its impact on health and wellness,” said Sundip R. Doshi, Chairman & CEO of AerNos, Inc. “Utilizing AerNos’ AerN2S Technology, our ability to design, developed and manufacture millions of tiny gas sensing elements will enable AerNos and its product partners to bring to the market meaningful gas monitoring solutions.”
In addition Ground Level Ozone’s impact on human health, Ozone affects sensitive vegetation and ecosystems, including forests, parks, wildlife refuges and wilderness areas. Ozone can especially cause damage during the growing season. According to the EPA and other experts, the effects of ozone can then have negative impacts on ecosystems, including loss of species diversity (less variety of plants, animals, insects, and fish), changes to the specific assortment of plants present in a forest, changes to habitat quality, changes to water and nutrient cycles. Furthermore, reducing ground-level ozone can have the following positive impacts on vegetation including protecting forest communities and Improving yields for timber and some crops, such as soybeans and winter wheat.
