Mite-Alert was the first in the ActivAllergy range of products. The product was launched in May 2003. It is a unique, easy-to-use monitoring device for house dust mite allergen (HDMA) in indoor environments. HDMA is a common causative agent in allergic conditions such as asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Asthma, for example, is a condition that affects over 150 million people worldwide and 85% of asthma sufferers are allergic to house dust mite allergen. Mite-Alert provides asthma and other allergy sufferers with precise knowledge on HDMA levels allowing them to take preventative measures before allergen levels can trigger an allergic attack. Currently, most asthma sufferers are only offered drug solutions for the treatment of symptoms, rather than those that enable control and avoidance.
Other products in the ActivAllergy product pipeline include allergen-monitoring devices for other indoor allergens.
The recent acquisition of Medivac Healthcare Limited has allowed Acaris to expand its product offering and provide allergy sufferers with a more comprehensive range of allergy-management products.
Acaris endorsed its technologies by entering into technology licensing and product development agreements in October 2002 for the development of a new range of products to detect and monitor hazardous biological agents used in industrial environments.
We have talked with allergy sufferers in our retail stores and tested every single product we sell right in their homes and listened to their feedback. If a product is not effective, needs constant repair or doesn’t hold up over time, we do not sell it.
That’s why every product is hand-picked to take the guesswork out of your shopping—we know what works and what doesn’t. Maybe the Austin Air isn’t the prettiest or cheapest air purifier on the market, but it sure works. That’s my promise to you for everything we sell.
