Prism Analytical Technologies has developed low-cost air testing tools like IAQ Check™ that can be the focal point of your school IAQ plan. Using this technology will allow you or your school district to monitor for many airborne contaminants for a fraction of the cost other analytical labs are charging.
More detailed tests like Prism’s TDT Air Scan® technology can be incorporated when high levels of organics are observed in the economical IAQ Check screening test, and there is interest in obtaining a detailed list of all the chemicals present in the school.
Then, if you have a select set of compounds that are of interest to your on-going IAQ plan, you can incorporate our TracScan™ product that allows you to monitor a specific set of compounds year after year in order to make continuous improvements in your air quality.
Prism has developed all the tools necessary to monitor the air quality in and around your school at a surprisingly low cost, and we can help you build the most cost-effective IAQ monitoring plan available. Call us at (989) 772-5088 and we’ll create a first-rate, economical IAQ audit program that can grow with your changing program needs.
TracScan is an enhanced reporting format that is available for most GC-MS and FTIR Air Scan analyses. In addition to a full analytical report, a TracScan report is a stand-alone, bound document that includes the following:
- A Prism library sheet on each primary identified compound showing exposure
limits, technical data, common uses/sources, and health-related data
- An Excel file with a statistical treatment of the data
- A simple Summary Report detailing considerations and recommendations
from Prism’s trained staff based on the analytical data
- A CD containing Prism’s library sheets with links to websites where additional
All TracScan data are retained on file and can be used at any later date to compare results from subsequent sampling. Used as a tracking tool, TracScan provides statistical information on all detected VOCs so that it is easy to access the improvement or degradation of air quality, note any significant increases in specific VOCs which may indicate that a change in operations or materials has affected the air quality, or identify any change in compound quantity or mix that may affect worker performance and health.
Used as a single-event analysis, TracScan gives submitters all the information they need to document an air quality assessment. This is ideal for the manager who does not have the time or expertise to personally address a problem. In addition, recommendations in the summary report section are simple to understand and easy to follow.
TracScan also provides a permanent record of the investigation, providing a legal document detailing the scope and findings of the investigation into employee or student complaints.
