With our team of experts and the GSA measuring instruments developed by our sister company, GSA Messgerätebau GmbH, we are ideally placed to carry out precise analyses of samples of a wide range of pollutants that are hazardous to health.

The topic of "fine dust" - reported in connection with different hoover models in TV reports. We also offer precise evaluations for the analysis of invisible, microfine and health-endangering fine dust.

In the TV report on hr-TV from 18.02.2021 on the topic: "Are hoovers fine dust eaters?", the GSA pollutant measuring device  PM4-2  was used for professional fine dust measurement. You can see the use of the measuring device from 01:34 minutes onwards in the hr-TV report.

For the RTL television channel, we as pollutant experts made a report on "Fine dust in the home. Some hoovers are real polluters", we analysed the fine dust produced by vacuum cleaning using a  scanning electron microscope (SEM).

We were able to find textile fibres, hair, but also pollen in the dust, to which many people can react allergically.

You can find our laboratory incl. our scanning electron microscopy in the article from 02:29 minute in the report:
