About Purkay Labs

Our mission is to create simple, portable and cost-effective monitoring systems for critical air spaces, including Data Centers, Colocation facilities, Labs, Hospitals, and commercial real estate buildings. 

Founded in 2012, our products are used over a hundred facilities across the US, Canada and Europe.

Our Story

Indra Purkayastha founded Purkay Labs in 2012 to make environmental monitoring simpler. In an industry with thousands of different products, Indra envisioned a way for any individual to go into any critical air space, scan the environment, and walk-out with meaningful information, in a safe and effective manner. 

After talking with customers in this space, Indra realized reliability, safety and simplicity were the three key driving forces for this industry. Indra then developed a manual, portable multi-height monitor that could be used “audit” the data center environment. The name, AUDIT-BUDDY, quickly followed.

Over the past four years, Purkay Labs has worked with its customers to create a simple and cost-effective way to spot check air quality and get specific data to manage cooling efficiency. The product offering has continued to evolve thanks to feedback from our loyal customers.
