Flame Retardants Test
Indoor air quality diagnosis. Measures indoor air pollution by PCBs, PBDEs, organochlorines and organophosphates. Analysis by a certified laboratory.
Flame retardants are added to many objects in our daily lives, such as upholstery foam, fabrics (curtains, drapes ...), carpets, plastic materials, including those made of recycled plastic.
These organochlorinated (PCB), organobrominated (PBDE, TBBA) and organophosphorus (TBP, TPP) molecules contaminate the indoor environment of homes and offices.
These chemical substances act on the proper functioning of the nervous system and are endocrine disruptors that have an impact on health from very low doses of exposure.
The YOOTEST Flame Retardant analysis test allows the precise measurement of indoor air pollution by these toxic molecules.
You take a dust sample in the room you wish to analyze with your domestic vacuum cleaner equipped with a filter provided.
You return your dust sample with the prepaid envelope provided.
Our expert laboratory analyses your sample 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 are classified as high priority for health by international health authorities, including WHO, US EPA, ANSES and HEALTH CANADA.
The INTEGRAL level analysis includes all the 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 accuracy. 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 contamination of the indoor environment by flame retardants is assessed by measuring them in a dust sample taken from the selected room.
The sampling device included in the YOOTEST Flame Retardant test consists of a nozzle to be attached to the hose of your vacuum cleaner.
Once the sampling is completed, the filter is returned to the laboratory with the sampling plug and using the included prepaid envelope.
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 as children are much more sensitive to the effects of plasticisers.
