Furniture containing chipboard, plywood, parquet flooring, cork tiles, insulating foams, wallpaper and paint coatings can emit formaldehyde in hazardous concentrations over the course of many years. Because the exposure can last for such a long time, it does not even occur to most people that formaldehyde might be responsible for their daily symptoms.
Depending on its concentration and a person's physical condition, formaldehyde can irritate the eyes and mucous membranes, cause headaches and generally make you feel unwell.
The Bio-Check F test can reveal the level of exposure within just two hours.
New car? New carpet? New furniture? New house? Volatile Organis Compounds (solvents) are everywhere. Test your environment with this simple test, - the Bio Check Solvents.
Airborne pollutants can be present in harmful concentrations not only in industrial environments, but also in the home. Adhesives, paints, varnishes and paint strippers often contain solvents which can escape into the air as volatile substances. Indoor air may also be polluted by solvents from neighbouring dry cleaners', petrol stations or traffic fumes. The result can be headaches or lapses of concentration.
Test for the 60 most common organic solvents in the atmosphere over 14 days. Lab analysis and thorough report included.
Exposure to the allergens of house dust mites is one of the most common causes of allergies. Symptoms in people with a hypersensitivity to this allergen include a blocked or runny nose, red eyes, sneezing and asthma. Children are at particular risk of developing chronic asthma, with one in seven children already affected. The allergy is often triggered by exposure to mite allergens. Unnoticed, this powerful allergen is to be found in bedclothes, sofas, carpets and the surfaces of other textiles. The most effective way to prevent illness is to consistently avoid or reduce contact with the substance causing the allergy. Bio-Check Allergen Control quickly reveals the presence of the allergens of dust-mites.
To perform the measurement, a tester is rubbed over the surface, e.g. of the bed, for one minute. A solution is then dripped onto the collected dust particles and after just ten minutes, the tester will reveal whether your level of allergen exposure is harmful. The whole test is quick and reliable, and involves no direct contact with the allergen and no chemicals. The compact wipe test is used to collect, prepare and analyse the dust particles, directly displaying the result of the test.
Test for Mould Test price being revised
Tough times are on their way for anyone with a sensitivity to moulds or their allergens. Depending on climatic conditions, ventilation levels and the type of building, moulds can form on virtually any organic substance indoors. Sufficiently moist wallpaper, plastering and wood also provide an ideal breeding ground for moulds. In no time at all, the moulds produce millions of spores containing allergens. The spores become enriched in house dust and can trigger allergic symptoms. Even the tiniest air flows are sufficient to transport these minute particles into the air we breathe, with unpleasant consequences such as irritation of eyes and airways.
Children, allergy-sufferers and adults with a weakened immune system are at particular risk. Often, moulds are not visible to the naked eye, so a test needs to be carried out where the presence of moulds is suspected.
The Bio-Check Moulds is a reliable method: using a special nozzle attached to your vacuum cleaner, you collect a sample of house dust close to the suspected source of the mould for approx. 3 minutes. The nozzle is sealed, sent in to Dr�ger and analysed in the laboratory. A short time later, you will receive an analysis report which advises you whether you are at particular risk of exposure to moulds. The nozzle can be fitted to most commercially available vacuum cleaners.
