healthy air is essential for a healthy home
More than a Monitor
Using proprietary air scanning methodologies and algorithms, a chemical analysis will be performed with a Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry and Fluorescence Spectroscopy. The instrumentation is routinely calibrated and can be traced to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reference materials. From this analysis, comprehensive reports are generated (reports are emailed to you within 5 business days of receipt of your kit).
We are pioneers and technology drivers, and industries all over the world rely on our expertise. Prism forged air scan technology in 1995 with its introduction of TDT Air Scan®, which is the standard by which the identification and quantification of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) is measured. Our expertise in air scan technology has paved the way for the development of the first comprehensive indoor air test for total VOCs and total level of actively-growing mold.

Your detailed report will include a Contamination Index, which gives you a prediction of which sources or materials in your home may be responsible for these contaminating chemicals, such as gasoline, paint, adhesives, odorants, personal care products, etc.
Armed with all of this information, you will be well equipped to take appropriate steps to remove or reduce the sources of contamination and ultimately improve the quality of air your family breathes. We can provide phone or chat line support to answer any questions you have and to help you improve your air quality.
The US Green Building Council recommends a TVOC level of less than 500 ng/L to be considered a healthy environment (the median US home is about 1,200 ng/L). A total concentration of Mold VOCs is also listed (generally, this number should be less than 8 ng/L).
