We're thrilled to announce that Plair has won the 2021 Geneva Innovation Prize within the framework of the Grands Prix de l'Economie, awarded by the State of Geneva, the Office for the Promotion of Industries and Technologies (OPI), and the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services (CCIG).
Plair SA, the Swiss creator, manufacturer, and provider of instruments for real-time bioaerosol monitoring, and MBV AG, the Swiss global leader in viable air sampling, jointly announce today the start of a strategic partnership to bring to the market new and innovative automated solutions for microbiology monitoring that combine the technology of both companies.
Atmospheric aerosol particles have an enormous impact on public health which enhance human diseases, whether they come from pollen, fungal spores, bacteria or viruses. It is therefore crucial to properly identify these threats.
The Plair team is pleased to share the news of its latest installation in Montreal, Canada. The Rapid-E instrument was installed at the University of Montreal for automatic and real-time pollen monitoring, in June 2019.
