AQS Offers Product Evaluation Testing

Atlanta-based Air Quality Sciences Inc. (AQS) now offers a product evaluation testing program designed to help manufacturers of air cleaners determine the level of ozone emissions and evaluate the safety and effectiveness of their products.

Emissions from such products are not federally regulated, and recommendations for a safe level of indoor ozone exposure will not be issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission until this fall.

AQS’s program features environmental chamber technology, which uses an environment similar to a home or office to test for product emissions such as ozone or particles. Exposure concentrations are determined by creating a mathematical model from the collected data.

“This modeling allows the product use to be evaluated for health, irritation and odor concerns for a wide range of indoor environments, and because it is conducted using standard industry protocols, manufacturers and consumers can have confidence in the results,” said Marilyn S. Black, Ph.D., chairman and chief scientist, AQS.
