KANOMAX 3800, Handheld Condensation Particle Counter



Optimal Screening Tool for Nano Particles, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends these kinds of direct-reading instruments and filter-sampling with lab analysis to obtain particle number, size and shape, the degree of agglomeration and mass concentration of elemental constituents in nanoparticles. Direct reading instruments include both optical Particle Counters and Condensation Particle Counters such as the Kanomax 3800.
