Our Mission

Allerma’s mission is to improve the lives of those who suffer from pollen and dust allergies.

We believe everyone, in spite of allergies, should be able to enjoy a good night’s sleep, find uninterrupted flow at work, and experience the joys of life, indoors as well as outdoors.

Our goal is to educate allergy sufferers about airborne allergens and their sources so that they can learn to avoid exposure as much as possible.

Our Founder

Allerma is founded by a curious long-time pollen and dust allergy sufferer, Sudhir Setia. He researches airborne allergens in his laboratory in Burlingame, California, and is certified by National Allergy Bureau as a pollen counter.

Sudhir regularly attends aerobiology and allergy conferences to stay up to date on the new developments in pollen identification and forecasting. He is fortunate to have access to the wisdom of doctors and scientists whom he meets at these conferences


We are grateful to Estelle Levetin Ph.D., Professor Emerita of Biological Science at the University of Tulsa for generously sharing her expertise and time with us. Without her mentorship, this body of work would not exist.
