Airborne Allergen Concentration

Description of the test

Measurement of airborne allergen generated by a cleaning product during the cleaning process


  • Testing is carried out in an environmental test chamber where the air exchange rate, temperature and relative humidity are standardised.
  • House dust with a known concentration of allergen is applied to a known surface area
  • Dry dusting and cleaning with water are used as controls.
  • The cleaning product is applied as per the manufacturers instructions and the cleaning process is carried out in a standardized manner.
  • Following cleaning, airborne allergen concentration is measured using an air sampler with a PTFE filter.
  • Filters are then removed, stored and subsequently analyzed for the presence of allergen
