Indoor Air Quality Lab

Our Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Laboratory is outfitted with an AIRFILTRONIX HEPA filter equipped fume hood and an Olympus BH-2 Microscope with a 100X magnification immersion oil objective.

With this equipment we can analyze (e.g. Zefon Air-O-Cell, Micro5 Microcell, Cyclex-D cassette) samples for the presence of mold, pollen and other particulate (e.g. fiberglass, cellulose, gypsum, opaque particles, etc.). Fibertec IHS employs the American Society for Testing and Materials (ATSM) Method D7391-09, entitled Categorization and Quantification of Airborne Fungal Structures in Inertial Impaction Samples by Optical Microscopy for all air sample analysis. Bulk or settled dust samples are analyzed by the Standardized Method for the Collection of Analysis of Bioaerosols. The protocol has since been revised.

Indoor Air Quality Investigations

Our staff of industrial hygienists are also trained and equipped to conduct indoor air quality investigations. Whether sick building syndrome, building related illness, poor ventilation or mold are to blame for air quality problems, our staff of highly trained and well equipped professionals can identify the source of the problem(s) and make recommendations for corrective action. Nothing beats careful visual observations when conducting such investigations, but when sampling is desired our staff is equipped for the task at hand.

Our equipment includes a carbon dioxide meter, an infrared camera, four gas meters, temperature probes, relative humidity probes, appropriate sampling media and more. Please contact us at 517-699-0345 ext 1 or for more information.
