AirSpeq is commercializing sensors for airborne particulate matter (PM). The technology is based on proprietary MEMS thin-film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) technology, and leverages more than 10 years of R&D at the University of California at Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. 

Monitoring and abatement solutions out there today take care of the superficial, visual and or olfactory air pollution problems because that is all they are able to measure.  AirSpeQ's technologies leapfrog existing solutions by allowing the accurate measurement of the most pernicious small particulate matter that can not only penetrate the lungs but also the brain and blood system. In contrast to competitor solutions, AirSpeQ’s monitors accurately measure PM across the full range of concentrations, are reliable across a range of environmental operating conditions, have a smaller form factor, consume less power, work longer without preventative maintenance and cost substantially less.  

AirSpeQ was selected as a NASA Earth Space and Earth Prize awardee.  AirSpeQ also won the Cutting Edge Award at the Shanghai/Yangpu Global StartUp Competition.
