  • Product Overview

    Laser particle counters are sophisticated monitors used for the quick and accurate measurement of airborne particle concentrations. Traditional units are extremely high priced and are often used in hospitals, laboratories and clean room facilities – where clean air is critical. This innovative air quality monitor uses the same laser technology as the traditional units to give you the same accurate readings. However, this monitor has been redesigned to expressly meet the needs of home users – at an affordable price.

    Particle Counts

    As air is cycled through the unit, both small and large particles are counted and displayed. Small particles counted include: fine dust, bacteria, mold, smoke, and smog. Large particles include: coarse dust, pollens, larger bacteria, plant spores, pet dander and dust mite feces. Anyone with allergies or asthma can use this information to specifically monitor their trouble areas. Someone with an allergy to pollen, for example, will be especially interested in their air’s large particle count.

    PC Interface Option

    The PC Interface Option has all the features of the standard DC1100, but also allows you to capture the air quality data to a PC for graphing and analysis. A 9-pin serial cable (not included) links the DC1100 to your PC or laptop which then captures the data as it samples. To use this feature, you must connect a 9pin serial cable from the unit to a COM port on your PC. If your PC lacks any COM ports, you can purchase a COM Port to USB adapter to use with the cable.

    NOTE - Any software that comes with the cable must be installed before using.

    Portable and Versatile

    The unit is small and lightweight, allowing you to easily test any area of your home. Take it anywhere you spend large portions of your day indoors. Use the information to take action to protect you and your family and give you peace of mind knowing that the air you breathe is safe and healthy.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Is this a 0.5/5 micron unit?

    This counter detects small particles in the range of 0.5 microns and 5 microns and large particles that are greater than 5 microns.

    Does it measure both outdoor as well as indoor air?

    While this product was created primarily for indoor use, it can be used outdoors. The manufacturer states that it shouldn't be used in direct sunlight.

    Is the DC1100 Laser Particle Counter sensitive enough to measure particle count in a class 1000 cleanroom?

    The DC1100 is designed primarily for evaluating the air quality in your home or office. It detects particles that measure from 0.5 to 5 microns. Sensitive cleanrooms require a particle counter that can detect particles as small as 0.1 micron.

    great product for the money

      Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

      We use the DC1100 for monitoring clean room construction activities. It is a great product, excellent value and has an impressive curb appeal for customers when ordered with the laptop/pc monitoring option. The biggest problem I have is when displayed on computer screen it has a real life picture of the device which definitely takes away from the professional appearance it would otherwise have.

        Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

        It's great to be able to check particle levels in my children's bedroom, before and after running the hepa filter. We live in Michigan where there is a lot of pollen and other airborne particles. I struggled with allergies growing up and both of my children have had some congestion issues at times. Since we started using more air filtration in the house, things have improved, and it's great peace of mind to be able to see actual levels of how much stuff is in the air at any given time.

        Great Product, Great company

        By Mike Barford

        from USA

        Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

        This is a product that destroys the compition. It's specs are equal to meters costing thousands of dollars. I requested some more information from the company, and they responded quickly and provided the information. We will be using many particle counters in our air quality monitoring stations.

        DC1100 Performs Well

        By Ray

        from USA

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

        I've been using the unit for about two months now to monitor air particle quality around my home and for several neighbors as well. The unit performs very well, although it can read high when too close to a light source. I've found the unit very useful in field-testing various air purifier systems. The DC1100 reports accurately even when the unit sits right at the exhaust for the purifier. As a result I have purchased a new filtering system for my home that the DC1100 confirms dramatically reduces air particle counts.

        For fun, throw a bag of popcorn into the microwave and watch the particle counts shoot through the roof.


        Good Price - Easy to Use

        By Jeff Molloy

        from USA

        Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

        I have used this product several times now and find it easy to use and understand. I was worried about its ability to provide reliable and consistant readings, but so far so good. To test it, I placed it in several areas. Then moved it several times back and forth between the locations. Each time I did this within several minutes of rotation I received consistant readings for each area. This made me confident that the readings were reliable. I wish it was a bit more sensitive to smaller particle size, but for a good quick idea of whats in the air I find it acceptable. Sylvane's price was also very competitive!

        By Fred Thomas

        from USA

        Comments about Dylos Laser Particle Counter:

        The laser particle counter is incredibly easy to use. I just took it out of the box, plugged in the AC adapter, and it started giving measurements immediately without requiring time to acquire a sample. I did find that when moving it from room to room you need to give it some time to stabilize at the new value. Maybe it takes some time for the old air to be purged with new air.
        It gives appearances of being accurate. In a room with a HEPA filter it measured 50 small (all particles down to 1 micron) and 5 large (5 microns and above) particles per 0.01 cubic feet. In a room without a filter it measured 200 and 25. In a dusty room it measured 440 and 78. (I’m not sure about the units. A cleanroom website said that a typical office building has 500,000 to 1,000,000 particles per cubic foot. Is my bedroom really a class 5000 cleanroom?) There is a discrepancy between the manual and the website’s description. The manual says that “Small particles are all particles detected by the DC1100 down to its detection limit â€" approximately 1 micron.â€� while the website says that “smallâ€� equals 1 â€" 5 microns.
        When you start it up it reads continuously, but it saves readings on a minute to minute basis. By hitting the mode button you can access this data on a minute to minute, hour to hour, or day to day basis, with the reading being the average concentration over that minute, hour, or day. To save energy and wear and tear on the instrument, you can select the “monitor� mode, in which it only samples for one minute per hour.
