Flowering plants usually releases pollen in the environment. Specific season has specific pollen in the atmosphere. These pollens when inhaled can cause attack of asthma & allergies in many sensitive patients.

Number of pollens in the environment can be measured by specific equipment named Burkard Pollen Counter. This instrument sucks environmental air thus pollens in air are trapped in the equipment. Through microscope number and specific type of pollen can be identified and measured.

If it is done on regular basis, it can provide valuable support to patients suffering from asthma and allergies. Timely warning can save them from exacerbation of allergy and asthma. The number given is the amount of Pollen particles measured within the last 24 hours in a cubic meter of air.
