Blueair attributes its high CADR rating to improvements made in the Model 501's ionization chamber
and in the polypropylene filters, Improvements include increasing the number of ionization brushes in the air filter chamber from 4 to 10.
The radicals, together with other reaction products, are permitted to enter the ionization chamber
of a mass spectrometer and are subjected to electron bombardment.
Samples were redissolved in acetonitrile-water-formic acid (50:50:0.025 by volume) and introduced into the ionization chamber
. Acylcarnitines were measured in multiple-reaction monitoring (MRM) mode with the ion pairs 347.4/85.0 Da and 360.4/85.0 Da for L-[[sup.2][H.sub.3]]octanoylcarnitine and malonylcarnitine, respectively.
Bengt Rittri, Blueair's president, noted "a trend with ionizing in general." His high-end units, said to earn the highest CADR rating, differ by using an ionization chamber
to keep the oxygen molecules inside.
The instrument uses an ionization chamber
to measure the exposure incident on the sensor; the voltage in the ionization chamber
is measured by the circuitry, and the appropriate measurement is displayed on a digital readout.
* Ionization Chamber
detectors use a radioactive source to produce electrically charged molecules (ions) in the air.
Furthermore, engineers are developing an improved detector component for the system and a smaller footprint for the ionization chamber
. These upgrades are being made in preparation for a design freeze of the prototype and multi device creation for additional testing.
The NIST pressurized ionization chamber
"A" has been used since the 1960s to maintain activity standards via calibration factors (K-values, vide infra) .

With a closed ion source, the ionization chamber
is somewhat separate from both the mass filter and the electron-producing filament.

Since the incident air kerma to be measured is generally only slightly higher than background levels, the standards and guidance documents in Table 1 generally recommend, for sensitivity, using a largevolume, free-air (thin-walled) ionization chamber
(IC) with a high-quality electrometer with 0.1 pC resolution for the charge collection.
