What is a Particle Counter?

Particle counters measure the amount of particulate contamination in the air, liquid, or surface being tested. Particulates can be any type of biological contaminates, such as mold, dust, ash, or oil. The information particle counters gather is invaluable to professionals in the pharmaceutical, electronic, and food safety industries.

Types of Particle Counters:
Handheld: These basic models are easily transported and can take samples just about anywhere.
Portable: Portable laser counters are larger, heavier, and contain more features than handheld counters.
