the "Pollen People"
IMS Health Incorporated, the company behind Pollen.com, PollenLibrary.com and Allergy Alert, helps to set the standards by which scientists, researchers, and doctors operate their samplers, and by which they analyze their pollen samples to obtain accurate and consistent counts.
IMS Health has published more than twenty peer-reviewed research papers in allergy and palynology journals, comparing how pollen counts are reported, studying differences in how and where they are obtained, instructing readers how to correctly analyze their samples using mathematical formulas, seeking trends throughout the U.S. in data sets of ragweed pollination, and synthesizing broad collections of published material into tables and charts that make it easier to locate information on pollen reporting.
Multidata manufactures the Rotorod¨ Sampler, the most popular piece of equipment for obtaining pollen counts used by researchers for decades. We instruct researchers how to properly obtain the best samples, and we provide customer service to hundreds of sampling locations and research staff.
