We know you have questions. TSI has answers.

COVID-19 and TSI Questions and Answers

Every day, TSI experts answer questions about particle science, respiratory protection, fluid mechanics, airflow and air pressure, and other fields and applications. Every day, solutions developed by our scientists and engineers are helping us learn more about virus transmission and infection prevention.

I have questions about . . .

 Respiratory protection

 What is the difference between qualitative and quantitative respirator fit testing?
 What fit testing method works best for all respirators?
 How can I better train my staff to wear respirators correctly?
 Other respiratory protection questions


 Aerosol and particle research

How well do different filter materials protect you?
How do I collect size-segregated aerosol samples for biological analysis?
Other aerosol and particle research questions


 Monitoring my workers' safety while social distancing
