About AethLabs

The Company

AethLabs was founded in May of 2011 by brothers Jeff and Steven Blair in San Francisco, California to focus on the development of high quality personal exposure and Black Carbon monitoring instruments. Through designing and manufacturing reliable and accurate measurement instrumentation, AethLabs helps to enable new science related to public health and climate change.

Currently, AethLabs' main product is the microAeth model AE51 - a handheld personal Black Carbon monitor - which was originally developed at Magee Scientific Company, where both Jeff and Steven previously worked. AethLabs is supporting and upgrading instruments for customers who have purchased Magee Scientific-branded instruments. AethLabs has made improvements to the microAeth hardware and software and, in 2012, moved manufacturing and assembly from Europe to the San Francisco Bay Area with final assembly in-house at our San Francisco facility. The microAeth® AE51 is available in the United States directly from AethLabs and worldwide through our distributors.
