RHINIXPRO™ NASAL FILTER
For the collection of airborne allergens
This device is worn comfortably and discretely within the nose for up to 24 hours, capturing allergens as the subject breathes normally.
After the sample period, the device can be sent to our laboratory for analysis of a range of airborne allergens.
The nasal filter will gradually adapt its shape to the proportions of your nasal cavity and you will become less aware of it as time passes.
Use the size guide below to choose the size of your filter.
