We are living in a different world where words like aerosolized transmission and PM 2.5 are becoming common terminology, but what exactly do they mean? How do we address such concerns? What is the impact of breathing bad air, and how does PM 2.5 affect our health? What is the long-term impact and how does PM 2.5 relate to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses? Furthermore, we must also be very cognizant about the air we breathe within the laboratory and address the accumulative effects of chemical exposure. Even below TLV levels the impact is significant, but the good news is there is a solution.
We will specifically be discussing:
- Technologies currently available for the mitigation of aerosolized viruses’ mitigation
- How these technologies work, their effectiveness, limitations, and implementation
- Separating fact from fiction—what can be done now to reduce the risk of airborne exposure and improve the air we breathe?
- Review of CDC and ASHRAE guidelines and recommendations
- Review of controlled testing data. What does this tell us?
- Real world test data—uncovering the reality
- Carbon filtration, the retention capacities, and the reality behind the misconceptions
