South Coast Science is a Brighton, UK based manufacturer of high precision air quality instruments. Established in 2016, the Praxis/Urban product was developed in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and is now used around the world for outdoor air quality monitoring projects. The 'Urban' can measure up to 9 different environmental parameters and data is stored onboard the device as well as being automatically uploaded to our cloud. We use an open-source data platform to make it easy for customers to download data into their own infrastructure and do their own validation if required.
The success of the Praxis/Urban has led to the development of the Praxis/OPCube and both products are currently undergoing MCERTS accreditation for pm2.5 and pm10. Additional products are planned for indoor air quality within serviced offices and for odour monitoring in the wastewater treatment sector.
