How Accurate Are Common Particle Counters?

We’ve tested three particle counters available in the market – Dylos DC1100, Origins Laser Egg, and Air Visual Pro, and compared them with the government PM2.5 monitor. We found that both the AirVisual Pro and the Laser Egg correlated r = 0.98 with the official PM2.5 numbers. The Dylos had the lowest correlation at r = 0.90, but this is still incredibly high.
So all of the three particle counters are good enough as home or office air quality monitors.
