Measuring ozone levels in a room, office, or outdoors is simple and easy. ProMedUSA is your local dealer for both the Aeroqual line of Ozone Meters and Sensors, and the Ecosensors range of ozone meters, monitors and controllers.
Both brands are considered the "Gold Standard" in measurement, and are known for their accuracy, ease of use and dependability.
Aeroqual uses a handheld base unit with a several detachable sensor heads that offer a wide range of measurement sensitivity (o to.5ppm, 0 to 20ppm, etc) while EcoSensors has a number of handheld units that incorporate the sensor as part of the unit.
The most popular Aeroqual unit is the model S300 or S500 base unit with the OZL ozone sensor head which measures 0 to 0.5ppm of ozone
EcoSensors is also extremely popular, and equally versatile as well as easy to use. The C-30ZX is one of their most popular ozone monitors with a range of 0.02 to 0.14ppm of ozone.
Aeroqual and EcoSensors have many different models of sensors, controllers and analyzers.
We represent both Aeroqual and EcoSensors here in Asia, and can assist you with choosing the best product for your needs.
What is Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)? In 2019 over 100,000 infants died from it.
As reported in CNN on January 5th 2023, The US Food and Drug Administration has accepted a biologics license application for a long-acting antibody for the prevention of lower respiratory tract infections caused by the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), according to the developers of the antibody. If approved, it could be available for use in some infants and toddlers later this year.
The pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and Sanofi, which developed the therapy Nirsevimab, announced Thursday that the FDA "has indicated it will work to expedite its review" and could take action in the third quarter of this year.
Nirsevimab, administered as a single dose, is the first-of-its-kind antibody to offer some protection against RSV for all infants in their first year of life.
If the FDA approves Nirsevimab in the third quarter, the antibody could be available in the United States for the 2023-2024 RSV season for the prevention of RSV in newborns and infants who will be entering their first RSV season, and for children up to 24 months old who are vulnerable to severe illness for their second RSV season. This current RSV season, the virus has overwhelmed pediatric hospitals all around the US.
"This decision brings us a step closer to delivering a first-in-class preventative option for a broad infant population in the US. If approved, we believe Nirsevimab may transform the medical community's approach to respiratory syncytial virus prevention in infants and we are committed to working with the FDA to support completion of the review as quickly as possible," Iskra Reic, executive vice president of Vaccines and Immune Therapies at AstraZeneca, said in the companies' announcement.
The biologics license application includes data from a Phase 3 trial on Nirsevimab, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, that found RSV infections requiring medical attention occurred in 1.2% of infants who received Nirsevimab compared with 5% of infants who were given a placebo, which corresponds to an efficacy of 74.5%. No safety concerns were identified.
In November, Nirsevimab was granted marketing authorization in the European Union, and additional regulatory submissions for Nirsevimab are underway around the world, according to AstraZeneca and Sanofi.
Nearly every child gets RSV prior to the age of 2, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While it can often be a milder respiratory infection for many children and most adults, studies show it is still a leading cause of hospitalization in all infants.
There is no vaccine available to prevent RSV.
Globally, in 2019 alone, there were 33 million cases and more than 3.6 million hospitalizations, according to a 2022 study published in the Lancet. It's estimated there were 26,300 in-hospital RSV deaths of children younger than age five and 101,400 deaths overall.

Mould can be serious - let me help you understand Mould, Mildew and it's causes.
Mould is the dreaded “M” word that no one wants to hear, or see, or smell. If you’re living in a home with mould, you’re probably wondering how it’s adversely affecting you and your family’s health—and how to remove it and prevent it from coming back.
Mould growth typically occurs in out-of-sight wall cavities as a result of water damage from flooding or leaks. Before you know it, mould creates a toxic environment in your home, compromising the quality of the air you are breathing in every day.
Unfortunately it’s nearly impossible to control all of these factors here in Asia because mould spores are everywhere around us. However, focusing on sources of moisture is your best bet at preventing or removing mould. If you can limit the moisture, you can limit the mould. At home, the most common areas are bathrooms, kitchens, poorly ventilated rooms or closets, rooms with open windows, or other areas of high humidity and dampness.
Sometimes you can actually see mould. There are over 100,000 species of mould and with so many variations, mould can come in a variety of colours, shapes, and textures. The most common colours of mould are grey, black, and green, but it can also be white, pink, blue, red, purple, brown—and sometimes a combination of colours. As for textures, mould could be fuzzy, powdery, velvety, or slimy. Remember, Mildew, as explained before, is flat, powdery, and typically grey or white in colour.
Mould can also grow behind wallpaper or inside your walls. The main visible sign of mould growth is the discoloration of the wall. Even if you paint over it, mould will persist and continue to show signs on the surface.
In addition to structural elements of the home, mould may be growing on individual items as well. Mould growth can often occur on leather shoes or garments, clothes hanging in the closet, and on furniture and drapes. Because closets tend to be small and enclosed spaces with no air-con supply vents closets may often have humidity levels higher than the adjacent living space.

The Singapore Zoo's Manatee Exhibit was being ozonated by an older system that was failing. Zoo's worldwide and Aquariums (like the S.E.A. Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa here in Singapore) use our ozone systems to remove bacteria, algae, parasites, and add a bit of oxygen to the water to keep the animals calm and happy.
As you can see, the water was quite green from the algae before we bagan inserting ozone.
We designed and installed an 800 gm/hr Ozone System with built in redundancy to ensure that the manatee exhibit would always have adequate ozone, even if a generator would fail.
Once turned on, literally within hours the water turned clear, and the manatees were visibly more active.
Ozone has many uses in aquaculture, marine life support and aqua farming. Contact us for your ozone needs. We can help with 0.5 to 1,000 gram systems!
