TESTING AND INSPECTION EQUIPMENT
You may never need us to use but 5% of our equipment, but it’s nice to know we have what it takes if the situation ever calls for it. From mold inspection and radon testing, to air quality and more, we have the equipment to provide you with accurate health safety information for your home or business.
NIKON® COOLSCOPE™ DIGITAL MICROSCOPE
The COOLSCOPE is revolutionary in every respect, from its looks to its functionality and ease of use. After loading the slide glass preparation onto the tray, users need only click the mouse to operate the microscope. Observations, image recording and networking can all be done with a single unit of the COOLSCOPE—no need for a PC. The popular image of a microscope has undergone a major metamorphosis.
The COOLSCOPE allows B4 Home Group to provide lab results to our customers within one business day.
Mycometer®-surface is a versatile analytical tool for testing surfaces and bulk materials for mold contamination on-site. This method was developed by research mycologists at the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with building inspectors and mold remediation specialists. The aim was to specifically develop a method to quantify the level of mold on different building materials and surfaces as well as inside porous materials (bulk samples). The Mycometer®-surface method provides you with validated criteria for documenting and delineating the amount of fungal biomass on a surface.
Mycometer®-surface measures both spores, hyphae and fungal particles such as hyphal fragments to give you the most comprehensive representation of the contamination in the environment. Geno Swick, our inspector, MycoMeter certification number is us0099dk.
Miran SapphireThe most versatile gas detection system on the market today Infrared spectroscopy provides the MIRAN SapphiRe™Analyzers with the unique ability to specifically and accurately measure many gases with a single unit. The MIRAN’s wavelength generator filter has a unique design that allows accurate and fast wavelength selection. This feature alone separates the MIRAN SapphiRe™Analyzer from other gas analyzers.
- Industrial Hygiene – Real-time detection of vapors in job environments promotes safe work habits. MIRANSapphiRe analyzers monitor at typical government-regulated levels.
- Emergency Response Analysis – The MIRAN SapphiRe assists emergency response personnel by quantifying knowns and assisting in qualifying unknowns
- Indoor Air Quality Studies – The MIRAN SapphiRe makes precise spot measurements for compounds such as CO2, CO, formaldehyde, or organic vapors.
- Waste Anesthetic Gases – Service technicians can identify leaks on anesthetic delivery systems by using the MIRAN SapphiRe Ambient Air Analyzer as a part of Preventative Maintenance (PM) work.
- Fume Hood /Tracer Gas Analysis – The MIRAN SapphiRe serves as an effective monitor for evaluating fume containment of laboratory hoods. Confirming proper operation of the ventilation systems with a fume hood is critical to assuring worker safety.
- Leak Detection for process maintenance – Using a leak detection probe you can set up the MIRAN SapphiRe to check for leaks around many types of process equipment, either in survey mode or in response to a specific compound.
ATP HYGIENE MONITORING SYSTEM
SystemSURE Plus™is the next generation of the world’s best-selling SystemSURE II ATP hygiene monitoring system. This new system uses state-of-the art electronics with improved functionality, but still maintains its small hand-held design and affordability.
HOW DOES THE SYSTEMSURE PLUS™ WORK?
In conjunction with the Ultrasnap and Aquasnap testing devices, SystemSURE Plus™measures adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy molecule found in all animal, plant, bacteria, yeast and mold cells. Residues, particularly food or organic residue, contain large amounts of ATP. When left on a surface, residues can harbor and grow bacteria, cause cross-contamination, develop biofilm and many other problems that can compromise product quality. Microbial contamination contains ATP, but in small amounts. After cleaning, all sources of ATP should be significantly reduced. When ATP is brought into contact with Hygiena™s unique, liquid-stable luciferase/luciferin reagent in the Ultrasnap or Aquasnap testing device, light is emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present. The system measures the amount of light generated and provides information on the level of contamination in just seconds. The higher the reading, the more contamination present.
CRM-510 CONTINUOUS RADON MONITORING SYSTEM
Precision Airborne Alpha Radiation Detection Instrument
The Femto-Tech, Inc. model CRM-510LP is a precision airborne alpha radiation detection instrument based on the same field proven pulsed ion chamber technology of previous models R210F and RS410F. Due to a unique patented electrometer and open grid probe design, the model CRM-510LP is highly suited for a wide range of radon measurement applications. Because of the low current requirements of the electrometer detector and on-board computer, the model CRM-510LP is truly a portable self-contained continuous radon monitor that can read and store test data for eight days of stand-alone operation. In this “passive” mode of operation the model CRM-510LP is uniquely suited for screening and follow-up type testing.
The full function computer system incorporated in the model CRM-510LP provides the operator with a highly flexible radon detection instrument and data logger operating system, while still maintaining the simplicity of operation for which Femto-Tech instruments are noted. In addition to the measurement and storage of radon data, the highly sophisticated on-chip peripheral capabilities of the micro controller (MCU) used in the CRM-510LP provide for the measurement and storage of temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity. This multidimensional data acquisition capability provides the tester with a unique data base for evaluating the validity of short term radon measurements.
E-PERM RADON TESTING SYSTEM
In our radon inspections, we have available the E-Perm radon testing system, the CRM-510 continuous radon monitoring system, and the Eripsu system. The E-Perm radon testing system enables us to give you instant results. The CRM-510 continuous radon monitoring system, when the test is complete, will produce results within a matter of hours which can be analyzed by our certified inspectors. For those who need Eripsu, which measures the working level of radon, this testing is also available through B-4 Home Group, Inc.
Graywolf SurveyorThe IAQ Surveyor is a handheld data-logging instrument designed for IAQ monitoring using the multi-function IAQ probes or single-function probes. The Surveyor enables you to accurately and reliably measure, datalog and analyze a wide range of important parameters including Humidity, Dewpoint, Airspeed, Differential Pressure, CO, CO2, Temperature, Barometric Pressure, and Gauge Pressure.
