Philly’s Pollen Ragweed And Mold Count Source

Since 1990 The Asthma Center has been the Philly region’s source for daily pollen, ragweed and mold counts. In 2020 we installed a new, revolutionary artifical intelligence powered pollen sensor – the only one of it’s kind in Philadelphia, and one of the few in the Northeast US. With this new pollen technology, we can publish live pollen counts and forecasts throughout the spring and fall allergy seasons.

Our previous counts were obtained by manual analysis and interpretation of pollen samples by a technician. The analysis was done daily and resulted in reporting lags of up to 24 hours, and was not available when the office was closed . The new counts come from machine-learning equipped sensors that automatically convert air samples into pollen forecasts. We will publish the data on this page, and distribute daily snapshots through our email subscription service. This will give allergy sufferers constant access to the data they really need: pollen and mold counts that reflect what is in the air now, not yesterday. For those who want to plan outdoor activities, this is the most reliable way of using current pollen data to make informed decisions about spending outdoor time.

College Partners With Allergy Practice To Show Patients What Allergies Look Like

You can feel it in the air every spring and fall when its allergy season in Berks County: the sneezing and running nose, the itchy, watery eyes. But did you ever wonder what your allergies look like? It may soon be possible to actually see your allergiesor rather, the pollen and mold that cause an allergic reaction in some individuals, through a partnership between Penn State Berks and Berkshire Allergy & Asthma Center.

It all began when Dr. Edward Hein, owner of Berkshire Allergy & Asthma Center, located in Wyomissing, was looking for a site that he could partner with to read and take photos of the information from his pollen collection equipment. His goal was to establish an official pollen reporting station in Berks County.

Hein explains that the closest official pollen reporting station is in York, Pa., and it can be as far as two weeks ahead of Berks County in terms of pollen activity.

Allergic patients may have allergies to tree pollen, grass pollen, weed pollen or molds. In many patients they are allergic to all these items. It is helpful to know when their specific pollens are coming out so that they can begin using their medications, explains Hein. Tree pollen allergic patients will begin their meds in March. Grass pollen comes out in May. Weed and ragweed pollen comes out in August. It is very helpful for patients to know when their allergies are appearing so that they know when to begin their treatment.
