Particles enter through the InstaScope wand and flow into the instrument’s chamber.
Inside the optical chamber, the mold particle is hit with a laser beam which determines its size. Based on the particle’s size, it will bathe the particle in UV light.
The fluorescent light is then analyzed by the computer to determine specific size, color, and color intensity of the particle. This is called biofluorescence and is what differentiates particles from one another.
