Soot and Char Microscopy

The presence of products of combustion such as soot and char 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 MouldLab we offer both air and surface microscopic analysis for products of combustion (soot and char).

To order Soot and Char analysis, simply clearly indicate on the Chain of Custody sent in with samples, with analysis requested being AOCMSC for Air samples and BTMSC for surface samples.
