Use ANY clear packing tape to collect surface dust from floors, carpets, furniture, equipment, walls and infrastructure and send to our lab (see instructions).

Test surface dust at the workplace, at home and in technology spaces including data centers. Our customers include facility managers, facility service companies and homeowners who want to know if airborne pollutants are impacting health and business processes.

One or more of the following lab tests can be ordered for a tape lift sample:

  • Total VOC (ppb) General pollution test

  • Formaldehyde (ppb)

  • Corrosivity (chlorides μg/cm2 & pH)

  • Heavy Metals including cadmium, cobalt, copper, iron, lead, mercury, nickel & zinc (ppb)

  • Lead (ppb)

  • Microplastics (μg/cm2)

  • Microfibers (<10 μm fiber width) including asbestos, glass, plastic and metal fibers (fibers/cm2)

  • Microbial Biomass including mold & bacteria (ATP as RLU)

  • Surface Radiation (alpha, beta & gamma)

  • Electronic Nose Scan (Cyranose 320 RAW output from 32 gas sensors as graph and CSV) More »

  • Metal Microfibers (<10 μm fiber width) including zinc and tin whiskers (fibers/cm2)

  • Electrical Conductivity (ohms/sq)

  • Particle Mass (μg/cm2)

  • Particle Metrics (including size, shape and fallout/PFO)

When we receive your tape lift sample we will email you a quote. After receiving payment we will process your sample within 2 working days and email you the laboratory report.

Test Price: US$137.00

Since all surface dust comes from air pollution, testing it shows what's in your air. Monitoring indoor pollution is more important than ever as shown by the following:

To protect health:

"air pollution is associated with 7 million premature deaths annually." - World Health Organization

To protect business:

"Contamination has been the indirect cause of more data processing downtime than all the fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and disgruntled employees combined." - Jon William Toigo, Disaster Recovery Planning
