Air Cleaner & Air Handling Devices

airmid healthgroup is one of the world’s foremost contract testing facilities for indoor pollutant measurement. 

The onset of the SARS-CoV-2 triggered pandemic has led to an acceleration of interest in the quality and safety of the air we breathe. While in the outdoor spaces, this has mainly been expressed in the context of fossil fuel consumption associated carbon particle generation, overall particulate mass (PM2.5) levels, as well as volatile organic chemical (VOC) exposure build up, indoors it has really become synonymous with infection transmission although many other indoor pollutants contribute to the burden of risk associated with poor indoor air quality.

A” Healthy Home” requires that good air quality is present and demonstrable, in order to maintain Health and Wellness. We take great care to ensure the safety of the food we eat and the water we drink, we must take comparable measures to ensure the quality of the air we breathe. The role of good air cleaning systems has been repeatedly demonstrated throughout the pandemic but this should be of little surprise given what we have known about air quality control in spaces such as operating theatre suites, clean rooms, etc.

airmid healthgroup is one of the world’s foremost contract testing facilities for indoor pollutant measurement. Its main focus is on the accurate quantification of Bioaerosols, defined as an airborne collection of biological material. These can incorporate viruses, bacteria, fungal spores and hyphae, allergens/pollens, and toxic by products of microbial metabolism.

The ability to accurately sample the air in a variety of different manners as befits each of the potential constituents of the Bioaerosols and then quantify them through highly sensitive , sophisticated laboratory techniques is what sets airmid apart.

Situated right beside our laboratories is a suite of climate-controlled testing chambers, the majority being full sized,  which can be adapted to meet almost any testing requirements, this is what allows airmid generate data of the highest standards. It is unique!

Our experience includes impedance and non-impedance based technologies, both free standing and in-duct. From HEPA/ULPA to UV, Ionization to Plasma fields, Photocatalytic to Ozone, either singly or in combination, gases and dry formulations, as well as other bespoke formulations, or large or small spaces, all are tested at airmid healthgroup.

Manufacturers who are seeking to have their products tested against a range of viruses, bacteria, fungal spores, allergens or toxins either in chamber-based studies, real life situations, or in vitro may wish to talk with airmid healthgroup’s scientists.  We provide:

  • Performance testing of existing products or protypes
  • Data to support marketing claims and product registration
  • Testing of new concepts, IP and designs as part of the product development journey  
  • Testing data beyond that currently required by ISO, ASTM and ASHRAE standards
