Polaron® F10+ Real-Time Bioaerosol Sensor

The Polaron F10+ provides real-time detection of airborne biological threats and other aerosolized anomalies. It rapidly and reliably detects all four classes of biological agents (spores, toxins, viruses, and bacteria) at low concentrations. By combining state-of-the-art patented polarized elastic light scattering and laser-induced fluorescence, Polaron detects small particles with weak fluorescence properties down to 0.5 microns


Polaron monitors air continuously to provide an early-warning of potential aerosol threats. It transmits information as a first-tier “trigger” in a networked system for a variety of applications:

  • Building protection
  • Mass-transit security
  • Special-event monitoring
  • Force and base protection
Key Benefits and Features
  • Best-in-class sensitivity – detects singlet particles in all agent classes (spore, bacteria, virus, toxin)
  • Fast response – informs of threats in real-time
  • High confidence – extensive US Government testing
  • More coverage – affordable, compact, lightweight
