Lennart Larsson

Lennart Larsson holds a PhD in analytical chemistry and is professor in microbial metabolomics at Lund University, Sweden. During the past 25 years his research has focussed on indoor air quality especially in relation to building dampness, and in 2010 he launched a new product, the surface emissions trap (cTrap). The cTrap (www.ctrap.com) is a unique adsorption cloth that is currently being used in Europe to stop the spread of harmful microbial and chemical emissions from building materials into the indoor air. Dr Larsson is mainly known for his mass spectrometry-based research on endotoxins and mycotoxins in the indoor environment.
