  • Settled Dust and Respirable Fibers
  • Soil, Sediment and Vermiculite
  • Water Samples TEM

Asbestos and Fibrous Analysis - Air Testing, Soil Testing, Water Testing
We perform testing on all types of sample matrices including air, water, and soil.  We are a full-service Asbestos Laboratory capable of TEM, PLM and PCM analysis.  Our analysts and Senior Staff are trained in the latest Federal (EPA and ISO) and State methods for all asbestos analytical parameters.  Our Soil testing capabilities include moisture content measurement, particle size analysis (including capabilities of sieve analysis and hydrometer analysis) and soil/rock aggregates milling that meets the CARB 435 method.

 

Asbestos Bulk and Air Sample Analysis:
• Asbestos Laboratory Licensed for PCM, TEM, PLM Analysis
• NVLAP Certificate of Accreditation for Airborne Asbestos Fiber Analysis
• NVLAP Certificate of Accreditation for Bulk Asbestos Fiber Analysis
• AIHA Accreditation for Industrial Hygiene

Lead Testing Services Include:

  • Lead-based Paint Air Sample Analysis
  • Lead-based Paint Chip Analysis
  • Lead in Soil Analysis
  • Lead in Water Analysis
  • Lead Dust Wipe Samples Analysis
  • Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure 

Lead Analyses in Air, Soil,  and Bulk Matrices
Our chemistry division specializes in Lead Analysis as well as RCRA Heavy Metals Analysis. We are an AIHA-accredited environmental laboratory which is capable and certified to perform lead analyses in air, soil, bulk matrices. Using Graphite Furnace and Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, we analyze paint chip, dust, soil, and TCLP samples and is able to provide fast, accurate turn-around times while also keeping costs low.

 

Our Laboratories are accredited for Lead in surface coatings such bas Toys etc for CPSC method through the National Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (NLLAP) and is a successful participant in the AIHA Environmental Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELLAP).

 

Lead-Based Paint Analyses:
• AIHA Accreditation and NLLAP Accreditation for Environmental Lead

Mold Testing Services Include:

Non-Viable (Non-Culturable)
  • Bioaerosols: Airborne Fungal Spore Identification
  • Tape / Swab / Bulk: Direct Transfer Fungal Spore Identification

There are two major categories of mold analysis: viable and non-viable. Sometimes referred to as culturable and non-culturable, the analytical work for non-categories which rely on the identification of spores (or conidia) by light microscopy to classify the molds present.

 

Though guidance documents exist, there are no accepted national standards or benchmark values to compare against to define exposure limits, accepted ambient levels or successful remediation clearance.
