partector 2

The world's smallest multimetric nanoparticle detector

now available


The naneos partector 2 is the world's smallest multimetric nanoparticle detector. The partector 2 uses dual non-contact detection stages to measure not only lung-deposited surface area like the standard partector, but also particle number concentration and average particle diameter. Additionally, ultrafine particle (UFP) surface and ultrafine particle mass concentrations are calculated and displayed. In contrast to some of our competitors, the UFP mass is displayed online, and it is calculated using the measured diameter of the particles, rather than estimated by a simple multiplier for LDSA.

The 7 key benefits of the partector 2 compared to traditional nanoparticle detectors, such as handheld CPCs, are:

 multiple meaningful metrics
 miniature and lightweight
 hassle-free measurement
 fast startup time
 orientation-independent operation
 wide particle concentration range
 great battery life
