MONITORING LOW LEVELS OF FORMALDEHYDE IN AMBIENT AIR
Formaldehyde is a colorless gas with a pungent odor. Levels above 0.1 ppm can cause allergy and acute health problems, e.g. sore throat, skin irritation, nausea, scratchy eyes and cough. Formaldehyde is also classified as highly carcinogenic compound. Exposure to moderate amounts of formaldehyde has been linked to cancer, such as leukemia.

Portability that enables field use
GASERA ONE FORMALDEHYDE photoacoustic gas analyzer is based on combining ultra sensitive cantilever enhanced photoacoustic detection technology with quantum cascade laser source operating at a Mid-IR fundamental spectral absorption line of formaldehyde.
This combination provides enough sensitivity (parts per trillion level!) to reliably measure ambient background levels of formaldehyde. It also gives an exceptionally high level of stability with a re-calibration period ranging from several months up to several years, and thus it offers a low total cost of ownership.
