Airmid Healthgroup Develops Textile Allergen Barrier Test

Dublin-based airmid healthgroup — a physician-founded research facility with core expertise in preventing poor health caused by indoor air pollutants — has introduced a textile allergen barrier test. Airmid reports its Allergen Barrier Test with Airflow offers accurate and repeatable results compared to thread count and pore size tests commonly used in the industry. The Allergen Barrier Test with Airflow uses an airflow to pull house dust with a known concentration of dust mite and cat allergens across a fabric. A downstream filter collects any dust that passes through the fabric where the allergen can be collected and measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit.

"Results generated by the Allergen Barrier Test with Airflow allows manufacturers and retailers to directly claim allergen blocking ability for fabrics against a number of allergens accurately and repeatedly," said Fraser Hodgson, COO, airmid healthgroup. "Our unique research technique and third-party testing provides proactive companies with innovative information to achieve technological and marketing advantages."
