Millipore® filters, supplied by MilliporeSigma®, were among the first to be used for ambient air monitoring, as early as the 1970s.  Particulates and contaminants in the air affect human capital, the most precious natural resource our planet supports.  Recognizing the need to protect this resource, industries, governments, and associated regulatory agencies around the world monitor ambient air.  Air monitoring methods have been developed to detect and quantify diverse contaminants and particulates, including PM2.5, PM10, sulfur dioxide, fluorides, heavy metals, and radioactive particles.  Many of these methods involve gravimetric analysis and monitoring systems that use membrane filter discs and filter holders.  With a recent focus on PM2.5 levels, due to connections to health disorders and diseases, major regulatory agencies have now issued guidance and methods for monitoring PM2.5.

Our Air Monitoring brochure will help guide your selection of appropriate filters for air monitoring that match the specifications with respect to regional regulatory considerations.  Learn the highlights of our filters, discs and accessories below, or click here for more details and ordering information.
