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, with low false-alarm rates. By combining state-of-the-art patented polarized elastic light scattering and laser-induced fluorescence, the Polaron can detect small particles with weak fluorescence properties, down to 0.5 micron sensitivity, while rejecting commonly occurring non-biologic fluorescing material that can cause false alarms in legacy detectors.


Polaron monitors air continuously and provides early-warning alarms 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 – capable of detecting singlet particles in all agent classes (spore, bacteria, virus, toxin)
  • Low false alarm rates – advanced algorithms for classifying aerosol backgrounds versus anomalies
  • Fast response – alarms can automatically initiate aerosol sample collectors
  • High confidence – extensive US Government testing
  • More coverage – affordable, compact, lightweight
