Proven results

AQMesh performance has developed through a series of co-location comparison trials in which AQMesh pods are installed next to an air quality monitoring reference station, with the comparative data then analysed to produce an R2 value showing the close relationship between the instruments.

Results from a 2017 co-location trial in Benelux showing the outstanding correlation of AQMesh against reference equipment when measuring NO2, giving an R2 value of 0.9

A co-location comparison trial in 2017 for NO in Slovakia proves AQMesh performance against reference, delivering R2 value of 0.93.
