Scentroid, A Canadian manufacturer, develops an instrument that can instantly measure the viral transmission score of any indoor space.
What is a Viral Transmission Score? Based on scientific studies that correlate environmental parameters with movement and transmission of viruses such as COVID, Scentroid
has created a system that will measure several air quality parameters. The AQSafe will then feed this data into an advanced algorithm to develop a unique Viral Transmission Score for your space. A low number indicates a lower transmission rate of COVID (or other potential airborne infections), and a high number indicates a higher transmission rate. An alarm or notification can be set up to notify you or a person of your choosing should this value exceed a specific threshold.
The AQSafe was designed to assist with restoring confidence in facilities forced to close their doors during the pandemic and to help our front-line workers feel a bit safer in their environment. It will not only revolutionize the future of sensory technology - it will also alter our perception of the air we breathe in indoor spaces.
“What is Your Facility’s Viral Transmission Score?”
Presented by: Dr. Ardevan Bakhtari, President and CEO of Scentroid
is the world leader in air pollution and odour measurement equipment and services. Based near Toronto, Canada, we internationally export to over 45 countries around the world. We are the world’s premier manufacturer of odour sampling and analysis equipment. With decades of experience developing state-of-the-art instrumentation for the environment, nuclear, and medical industries, we strive to bring new and innovative technologies to the field of odour measurement.

Building the Device: Creating an effective tool to process raw data and VTS Formula
To effectively collect data, an indoor stationary device is necessary, and it must be an appropriate size to house a sensor payload suitable to creating an in-depth analysis of a space’s Viral Transmission Score (VTS). It must also have a screen or an effective method of communication to display any hazards quickly and effectively or to communicate a rapidly increasing VTS.
We decided on using our Scentroid
AQSafe Indoor Air Quality Monitor.
The AQSafe indoor air quality monitor observes the air quality of an enclosed space with a wide range of sensors including pressure, temperature, and relative humidity. Our sensor detection ranges from dust (PM1, 2.5, and 10), Carbon Dioxide, temperature, humidity, pressure, and many other chemical compounds found indoors within any public facility or space.
The AQSafe features a compact, low profile design. It is both easy to install and operate. The touch screen incorporates control over a variety of advanced gas sensor technologies, designed to monitor areas of concern. Not only has it been proven for long term stability, but all sensors have been calibrated and prepared. The AQSafe is designed with labor saving, cost-effective, and health and comfort measures in mind.
The AQSafe features built in software for graphical representation, statistical data, and alarm systems (including text message notifications), ideal to calculate and communicate a hazardous VTS immediately as it occurs.
