From December 04th -15th, 2020 home validation tests were carried out in IKO Science laboratory, showing little significant ability of Biodetector BD500 to detect bioaerosols. Tests resulted in detection of Bovine serum albumin (molecular weight 66kDa, hydrodynamic diameter 6 nanometres) and α-Lactalbumin from bovine milk (molecular weight 14.2kDa, hydrodynamic diameter 2-4 nanometres (sizes of smallest viruses)). Tests witnessed by Mr. Toomas Kübarsepp, Senior Researcher, Research and Development Division of METROSERT AS (please kindly find Test protocol attached).
On January 14th, 2021 IKO Science gained metrological data from Biodetector BD500, executed by METROSERT AS, Central Office of Metrology in Estonia (equivalent to a National Metrology Institute).
The data confirmed that an even lighter particle, which can be detected by Biodetector BD500, can have molar mass of approximately 9 kDa (which corresponds to hydrodynamic diameter app. 1-2 nanometres, so smaller than any existing virus). Please find Executive summary attached.
Please kindly note that we are not currently able to provide full text of metrological data fromof Biodetector BD500, as it contains confidential information, which is deemed sensitive due to patent pending.
As attachments and information above is only a limited description and presentation, please do not hesitate to contact us for any additional information, presentations and technical data needed (subject to limitations and restrictions due to sensitivity).
