Your Service Laboratory for Air Quality Measurements

New technologies for improved air quality measurements and air purification. matter who we are or where we come from, we're all entitled to the basic human rights of clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy land to call home. MLK III

How It Works

Our Operation

We offer mail-in air testing services that enable you to better detect and control air pollution.  Our passion is the development of new sampling devices, laboratory methods, and operational protocols that increase the quality of your testing data without increasing your cost.

All measurements are made in a laboratory that's operated according to the ISO 17025:2017 standard. This means that we get it right every time, providing you with the highest quality data available.

We guarantee that each purchase that you make will help to advance the science of air measurement.  We reinvest a significant percentage of our earnings into the development of new and improved air testing methods, enabling you to progressively improve the air quality that you control.

We strive to provide the highest quality measurement services for a reasonable price. We're also agile enough to develop entirely new tests on tight timelines. What is it that you need us to do for you? Please feel free to reach out with any problem that you have and see if we can help.

Services for Specific Professions

We work for you, helping you to reduce risk and associated liability.  Many of us handle toxic chemicals daily, including employees of Air by CCsquared Inc. We use chemicals for good reasons and understand the benefits that they bring, although we also know that our exposure to these can cause harm.

We provide you with a solution to the problem of occupational exposure to these useful but potentially harmful chemicals.  By monitoring average exposure levels during a workday using a simple air sampler that can be worn on the collar, you can develop protocols for handling chemicals that minimize exposure, ensuring that you and your employees remain healthy and in compliance with OSHA laws.

Indoor Air Quality

The quality of indoor air in our homes and workplace is essential for our health and well-being. 

Recent studies have shown that modern, energy-efficient homes are fine traps for toxic vapors - indeed, it’s reported that radon gas is significantly higher in newer home (see published studies from Goodarzi at U. Calgary and Pernot & ToxPro in Switzerland) suggesting that indoor air toxics are increased because of reduced ventilation. 

Air toxics that are well established to be problems in indoor air include formaldehyde and related aldehyde (like acrolein) and isocyanates.  These chemicals are commonly used in the preparation of construction materials, such as particle board and plywood and readily outgas air toxins for years after their preparation. We provide well-established measurement tools to help you to measure and control these vapors.   We are also involved in the development of next-generation media and samplers for the measurement of these toxins.  For example, we’re developing methods to detect both acrolein and malondialdehyde in indoor air using methods such as TD-GC-MS.  Keep an eye on our blog to learn more about these projects and understand how they impact you.

Industrial Hygienist, EH&S

As the science of toxicology advances, we struggle to ensure a safe work environment for all employees.  Many chemicals that were considered harmless a decade or two ago are now tried and convicted of causing harm.  Consider the case of the flavor of butter (diacetyl) – we’ve learned that such a pleasant-smelling substance can cause life-threatening lung damage.   We also see the acceptable exposure limit of many common chemicals, such as formaldehyde and bromopropane, dropping significantly, from PPM to PPB levels.  We strive to provide the products that you need to keep yours safe, moving quickly enough to keep up with the most recent finding.  We especially rely on you, our customer, to keep us up to date on your needs.  Is there a chemical vapor that you’d like to measure that is not discussed on our website?  Please tell us so that we can better serve you.

New Product Development

We strive to define the state of the air in our area of expertise.  To do this, we’re constantly developing new products, most of which are motivated by suggestions from you, our customer. 

For example, we’re currently exploring the presence and effect of malondialdehyde in indoor air in response to a study of a customer’s residence which was uninhabitable due to poor IAQ.  We’re also working to develop an air purification system that can be used in cases like this, so in the future, our customers will regain their living space.
