Soot and Char Microscopy


The presence of products of combustion such as soot, char and ash particles can have a serious detrimental effect on air quality standards. Excess combustion particulate in the air can cause serious health concerns such as irritation and damage to lung tissue, cardiac issues caused by inflammation and some combustion products contain carcinogenic (cancer causing) compounds.

At Eurofins we offer both air and surface microscopic analysis for products of combustion (soot, char and ash).

To order Combustion products analysislysis, clearly indicate on the Chain of Custody sent in with samples, with analysis requested being AOCMSC for air samples and BTMSC for surface samples.
