Assessing Airborne Pathogen Risk in the Time of COVID-19


Verify Safe Airflow, Breathe Easier
COVID-19 presents a significant safety and health risk to the built environment given the potential for airborne transmission via respiratory droplets that can evaporate, turn into aerosols, float in the air for hours, travel significant distances, and live on surfaces for days.

Moreover, property managers lack adequate diagnostic tools for assessing the risk of building airflows for COVID-19 and other airborne pathogen transmission, with harmful consequences to occupant safety and health, organizational productivity, and the property’s underlying value and liability.

The Solution: veriDART™

The First Airborne Pathogen Mobility Indicator

At the cutting edge of building science, health science, and data science, veriDART is the first and only diagnostic solution for safely assessing airborne pathogen risk in the built environment, enabling Facility and EHS teams to identify transmission hotspots, assess ventilation and filtration, and inform remediations. veriDART leverages airborne tracers that safely mimic the mobility of pathogens like SARS-CoV-2 in order to assess risk and strengthen building safety for occupancy and re-occupancy. The veriDART adheres to the highest levels of product safety and is well below the OSHA, NIOSH, and ECHA safe exposure limits.

See the veriDART in Action
The veriDART was recently deployed at a Fortune 100 technology company's multi-purpose complex to determine a safe approach to reopening during COVID-19. Read the case study to understand how the veriDART provides a clear risk assessment for hotspots to prepare the building for the safe return of its employees.
Steps to Address Airborne Transmission Risk
plan-15

Plan

A comprehensive test plan is designed for your floor plan, HVAC system, and risk factors.

veridart-infographic9-11

Spray

Qualified professionals release patented airborne tracers throughout the building.

veridart-infographic9-12

Circulate

Airborne tracers disperse through building spaces and air ducting.

veridart-infographic9-13

Sample

Air or surface samples are collected and tested for selected points throughout the building.

The Benefits
  • Baseline risk assessment: safely identify high-risk transmission vectors for COVID-19 and airborne pathogens.
  • Evaluate efficacy of defenses: test filtration, ventilation, cleaning and sanitizing, and floor plan layout.
  • Assess efficacy of remediations: determine if remediation actions undertaken are working or not.
  • Environmental monitoring: Use on routine basis and link to COVID-19 testing of people and surfaces, cleaning and sanitation schedule, etc.
