Then use the Bio-Badge for easily sample collection. Simply place the Bio-Badge in the area to be tested in by following the provided instructions. Nest, the Bio-Badge absorbs present Formaldehyde particulates (particles) by collecting air from an indoor area of up to 2800 square feet. The Bio-Badge should be left in place for a 24-48 hour testing period (preferred sampling time is 24 hours).
Find out if there are elevated levels of formaldehyde that could be dangerous or have adverse health effects. Use the Formaldehyde Test Kit is useful to evaluate formaldehyde in homes, commercial establishments, retail, hospitals, schools, hotels, airports, and more.
Accredited Lab Analysis
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) provides a final report included in the cost of the Formaldehyde Test Kit. The test kit s all inclusive, there are no hidden fees, or shipping charges. The concentration levels of formaldehyde are reported in parts per million (ppm), and are compared to what is considered to be normal normal levels. Formaldehyde can be detected at levels as low as 0.002 parts per million (ppm) for a 24 hour test.
Once EDLab receives the Bio-Badge sample for analysis by our partner labs, your lab report will be generated and emailed within 7-10 business days.
