View from above shows a chimney with smoke rising into the air - air quality testing

CVR Labs is qualified and has the necessary equipment to conduct indoor air quality testing, ambient air quality monitoring, and microbiology air analyses. We test air quality for Environmental, Microbiology, and Industrial Hygiene analyses, depending on the needs of our clients. Our sampling media ranges from cassettes, swabs, and even summa canisters, to name a few. If sampling or a media kit are required to carry out the analyses, CVR Labs may offer them. We also have a certified team that conducts sampling at the request of the client.

Volatile Organic Compounds by TO-15
Air samples are collected in a Summa Canister or a Helium Diffusion Sampler. VOCs are concentrated on a solid sorbent trap, refocused on a second trap, separated on a GC column, and passed on an MS detector for identification and quantification.
Volatile Organic Compounds by TO-17
Ambient air is drawn through a multi-bed sorbent tube where VOCs are trapped. At A & B Labs, the tube is thermally desorbed and analyzed by GC/MS.
Volatile Organic Compounds by TO-15-HDS
The HDS Personal Monitor makes it easier to keep an eye on chemicals at work. An innovative new technique based on helium diffusion produces a sampler that is compact, lightweight, cost-effective, ubiquitous, and defendable. Above all, the HDS Personal Monitor delivers highly reproducible results unaffected by factors that create errors in other diffusive samplers such as matrix concentrations, varying humidities, and fluctuating face velocities. Because helium diffuses more quickly than air, a vacuum is created when helium departs, and this vacuum is used to collect an HDS sample. To support appropriate sample collection in the field and demonstrate successful recovery during laboratory analysis, an alternate recovery chemical is provided to each HDS Personal Monitor. There's a new, easier method for gathering canister samples.
