Fiberglass Test Kit: Fiberglass is mostly used as insulation material. It is listed as an irritant, causing potentially serious harmful health issues. Fiberglass can make its way into indoor air through holes in air ducts, exposed insulation in the ceilings or walls, or from a deteriorated liner within the air handler unit. Fiberglass particulate (particles) in the air will eventually fall to a surface, usually collecting as a shiny looking dust.
The Fiberglass Screen Check (Fiberglass Test Kit) is ideal for identifying fiberglass fibers and other synthetic and man-made fibers that have collected in various surface locations of the home or workplace by utilizing a revolutionary sample collection device called the Bio-Scan400. The Bio-Scan400 is a very effective tool in providing accurate, detailed analysis of the air we breathe and the pollutants that may be present.
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) will provide a final report included in the cost of the Fiberglass Screen Check. This report will provide identification and concentration levels for any fiberglass or other fibers identified as measured in Counts/cm², and will have guidelines for what is considered to be a normal manageable level, as compared to the total level of each pollutant found on the Bio Scan400.
Once EDLab receives the Bio Scan400 for analysis, your lab report will be generated and emailed within 3-5 business days.
