    DescriptionDo you breathe freely? Air quality: our researchers are shifting the focus of the limelightIn the last decades, the number of people with allergies against at least oneof the major allergens like birch, grass, ragweed pollen, or domestic cat has been steadily increasing. Nevertheless,state of the art filter tests do not consider the filter efficiency regarding their retention rate concerning these substances. Filter and filter systems are still tested with standardized mineral dust (e.g. “Arizona Road Dust”) but the find-ings of these research methods are not representative in the context of allergens and pathogenic germs.
