Benzene & Hydrocarbons Test
Indoor air quality diagnosis. Measures the indoor air pollution by benzene and other VOCs. Analysis by a certified laboratory.
Benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons are volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and indoor air pollutants in homes and offices.
Classified as a proven human carcinogen, indoor air contamination by benzene is of particular concern for the health of occupants.
The YOOTEST Benzene and Hydrocarbons analysis kit allows accurate measurement of indoor air pollution by benzene, aromatic VOCs and hydrocarbons.
You carry out the air sampling in the room you wish to analyze with a passive sensor for a full week.
You return your air sample with the prepaid envelope provided.
Our expert laboratory analyses your samples and produces a complete and comprehensible report including advice on how to improve the quality of your indoor air.
The ESSENTIAL level analysis focuses on the most hazardous chemicals that have been classified as high priority for health by international health authorities, including WHO, US EPA, ANSES and HEALTH CANADA.
The INTEGRAL level analysis includes all ESSENTIAL level chemicals as well as an extensive list of other common indoor air pollutants of health concern.

YOOTEST allows you to test the quality of your indoor air with great precision.
The selected pollutants are measured in the laboratory using state-of-the-art technology to ensure measurements below the international health reference values for the most dangerous air pollutants in indoor air.
The measurement of aromatic VOCs in indoor air is carried out using a passive sensor including activated carbon, which allows these pollutants of particular health concern to be captured.
The sensor must be placed in the room to be analyzed for a period of 7 consecutive days.
At the end of these 7 days, the sensor is returned to the laboratory with the sampling sheet, using the prepaid envelope provided.
It is recommended to use one test for a maximum area of 650 to 850 square feet (60 to 80 m2).
Children's bedrooms should be considered a priority for research and measurement of indoor air pollution by these chemicals.
