veriDART™ by SafeTraces

SafeTraces’ aerosol tracer technology, veriDART™, mimics an infectious person’s cough/sneeze, allowing UES to identify how aerosols travel through your building(s) and measure their concentrations. With this data, we can verify the efficiency/efficacy of your HVAC systems (ventilation, filters, etc.) to reduce the infectious aerosol spread. We are also able to produce cost savings by identifying your buildings’ targeted areas of concern prior to large capital investments.

Why veriDART™?

  • veriDART is the leading solution for verifying safe indoor airflow
  • veriDART ensures optimal ventilation system performance
  • veriDART reduces infectious aerosol transmission risk
  • veriDART allows for the collection of baseline data before making large-scale changes or investments
  • veriDART lets you physically see how your HVAC system filters and moves air
  • veriDART indicates how quickly aerosols dissipate in your spaces under current HVAC conditions
