Air sampling tests
We spend around 80% of our time in enclosed spaces and interior air is 5 to 10 times more polluted then exterior air. That is why for more then seven years, Céra-Labo has been working on identifying, limiting and informing on pollution emitted by materials.
Our services include the determination of a large range of chemical pollutants in places of residence, work or establishments open to the public, such as:
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): benzene, … (Active sampling on Tenax tubes or passive on Radiello cartridges)
- The aldehydes: formaldehyde, … (active sampling on Silicine-DNPH cartridges or passive on Radiello cartridges)
- Hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid
We use cutting edge analytical material: Chromatography in Gas Phase paired with mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) for analysis by Headspace (HS-GC-MS) or thermal desorption (TD-GS-MS), Chromatography in Liquid Phase (HPLC) and UV-Visible spectrophotometry.
