Three Simple Steps
The wristbands can absorb volatile and semi-volatile compounds directly from the air (from the vapor phase), and do not measure compounds from particulate matter. These wristbands enable researchers to correlate location or lung function with air pollutants. One of the challenges of quantifying personal exposure is measuring the pollutants in an accurate and time dependent way. Recent research has been published on the wristbands supporting temporal (time-sensitive) and spatial (where you are) sensitivity of these passive samplers.
