Bruce McDuffee, National Humidity Instructor for Vaisala, comments, ‘Humidity is one of the more difficult measurements to make and has been known to cause problems throughout the highly regulated life sciences industries. The first step towards dealing with and compensating for the problems caused by humidity is to understand the properties and definitions so that a proper, reliable, and repeatable measurement can be obtained.

Humidity 101 is designed to be educational in nature and covers topics such as humidity definitions and theory, psychrometrics, calibration, good measurement practice, and specific training on the use of the Vaisala HUMICAP technology.’
