Minnesota Safety Conference

October 19, 2020 - October 20, 2020

One-stop Analytical Tools for Airborne COVID-19 are on Display at the Virtual Minnesota/South Dakota Health & Safety Conference, October 19-20

It’s now known that the SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads in indoor air more than previously believed. SGS Galson will display our complete solution to air testing of this virus, and other industrial hygiene analysis and monitoring solutions, at the virtual Minnesota/South Dakota Health & Safety Conference.

Two SGS Galson analytical innovations provide a powerful combination to both detect the virus in the air and continuously monitor to determine if the ventilation is sufficient to reduce risk of accumulation of virus in a room.

  • Our new air method for monitoring SARS-CoV-2 in the air draws air into a filter to detect SARS CoV-2 in air. This method is based on the same RT-qPCR approaches used for human and swab testing.
  • SmartSense continuous monitoring with sample capture, SGS Galson’s state-of-the-art continuous monitoring system, is ideal for CO2 and particle monitoring that lets you know, over time, if ventilation is sufficient to provide adequate make-up air. In combination with our SARS-CoV-2 method, SmartSense provides real-time measurements for SARS air sampling and notification of poor indoor air quality. Additional SmartSense direct read capabilities include 1, 2.5 and 10 Particulate, PID, CO, SO2, O3, EtO, CH4 and more!


As always, SGS Galson is your best partner for all your OHS analysis.
