VOC Test Kit (Volatile Organic Compounds)
VOC Test Kit – VOC stands for volatile organic chemicals. A number of volatile organic chemicals (VOC’s) exist in the home or office buildings, and these chemicals may be hazardous or toxic in nature when present at increase levels. Some of these are commonly known as Volatile Organic Compounds like the ones found in paints, surface coatings, cleaning products, vinyl flooring, and even items like vertical blinds. The Organic Vapor Screen Check can identify up to 150 different chemicals that may be present indoors. This includes almost all of the common vapors that can be found in indoor air.
How to Test for VOCs
You’ve asked us how to test for VOCs in your home. So we brought you the Organic Vapor Test Kit to make it easier than ever to screens your home or office for total volatile organic compounds in your space. Now it’s possible to identify and measures the concentration levels of VOC’s at a desired test location by utilizing an easy to use sampling method called a Bio-Badge.
The Bio-Badge, included in the VOC test Kit, absorbs VOC chemicals (VOC gas) by absorbing air from an area up to 2800 square feet. The Bio-Badge is placed in the environment for a 24-48 hour period (24 hour sampling time is recommended) and absorbs the air and VOC gases that may be present.
VOC Air Test Kit
The Organic Vapor Test Kit, also known as VOC Test Kit is useful to evaluate the chemical compounds of VOC levels in homes and in commercial establishments including hospitals, schools, hotels, airports, etc. Identify the VOC levels in all types of indoor environments up to 2,800 sq ft.
How to test VOC Levels with this Easy to Use Test Kit
After your sample is collected with the provided Bio-Badge, use the postage-paid envelope included in the kit and send the sample to Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) for Accredited partner lab analysis. Lab analysis is INCLUDED with this kit. There are no hidden fees or hidden postage costs. EDLab analyzes the sample and provides a final report included in the cost of the VOC Organic Vapor Test Kit. Your lab report will be generated and emailed within 7-10 business days from receipt.
Concentration levels of VOC’s are reported in parts per million (ppm), and are compared to what is considered to be normal. All compounds can be detected at levels as low as 0.03 parts per million (ppm) for a 24 hour test.
As with all our our test kits. The VOC Test Kit has no hidden fees and includes lab analysis and sample shipping costs.
VOC Testing Kit, Chemical Testing Made Easy
If you have a concern, you should probably check your space for volatile gases. Is there a strange smell? A lingering odor? Does you throat or sinuses get irritated when you’re in the basement? These are just a few things to consider that may indicate the presence of volatile organic compounds. So do what thousands of other homeowners across the US and Canada have already done, test your home for VOCs. VOC air quality testing is quick, easy, and cost effective when you do it yourself. This kit includes full accredited lab analysis included in the cost, so there are no hidden fees and you receive accurate results you can count on.
As you’re aware, VOC flooring has made the news over the years and alarmed homeowners for good reason. These chemicals, which include including Benzene, Toluene, Acetone, Mineral Spirits, Hexane, and Styrene, can cause raspatory problems and long exposure at high volumes can cause very serious health concerns. That’s what makes testing for VOC important. Get your VOC testing kit today.
If You Think You Should Test, You Definitely Should
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are analyzed and measured by using a Bio-Badge sample collection device (included in kit) and submitting the Bio-Badge for analysis by our accredit laboratory partner (included in price of kit, no hidden fees). A lab may use techniques such as GC-MS to ensure that nothing harmful or toxic is present in the samples presented. This technique breaks down the the sample into constituent parts and provides data on what is contained in the environment.
How Does this Kit Compare to Inexpensive Monitors Sold Online?
Many devices sold on Amazon or other resellers use typically use a heated metal oxide semiconductor sensor that costs under $10. The laboratory equipment utilized to analyze the samples from our kits cost over $7,410 and is maintained by a staff of scientists that are managed by a Ph.D lab director. Don’t be fooled by the cheap sensors sold online, they provide unreliable data that we consider to be nearly useless. Although these cheap devices often times look nice and give a read out that says it is the amount of VOCs found in the environment, it cannot be trusted or relied upon to be accurate. Monitors like those generally measure temperature and humidity pretty well, but fail when attempting to measure VOCs.
