Get back to school safely with Testo’s classroom monitoring solutions.

California Assembly Bill (AB) 841,372 mandates CO2 monitoring and data logging in classrooms – Testo 160 is perfect solution for the data logging that allows you to return and remain in the classroom.

  • Safety measures in ventilation are needed to mitigate the impact of viruses (COVID 19 and others) and virus spreading. California and Federal guidance have been issued to help address the problem by monitoring classroom air.
  • California has funds to administer programs for K-12 schools.
  • Federal Funding is well over $170 billion.
  • Testo has the right monitoring instrument, at the right time, to get you safely back into your classrooms.
