D&S Electrostatic Samplers, LLC (DS Scientific) is a Louisiana-based start-up company that sells ionic spore-catching devices developed at the LSU AgCenter to detect and analyze airborne hazards. The technology comes from the research of Dr. Raymond Schneider, a professor in the Department of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology. The device gives incredibly clear and detailed pictures of any particles that pass through it, allowing for more accurate identification of the material. The product is available for sale through the company's website.
