Our Protocols for Polychlorinated Biphenyls Testing

Fixing Window
Removing contaminants should be done with proper protections.

Don’t unnecessarily expose yourself.

We test for PCBs.

Our PCB testing protocol follows established parameters of standard procedures for sampling and testing, and covers specified content such as but not limited to the following:

  • site and location of the sample extraction;
  •  a date on each page;
  • exact times of sampling events or visual observations;
  • types of samples collected and sample identification numbers;
  • number of samples collected;
  • specific description of sample locations;
  • description of sampling methods;
  • field observations.

    In PCB testing, we use the low flow (0.20 liters per minute) pump and the Swinnex sampler. It is “the best pump to use in a classroom tests for very low levels. The low flow tests about 50 liters of air and uses the Swinnex holder with a glass fiber filter, and the Florisil resin absorbent tube. ” This is the standard for testing indoor air. Note that the CIH does not collect the samples. The CIH prepares protocols for inspectors to follow in assessment/inspection and the CIH prepares the report.
