SanAir Technologies, Cincinnati-Area Environmental Lab, Earns NVLAP Asbestos Accreditation
SPRINGDALE, OHIO, January 8, 2019 — SanAir Technologies Laboratories, Inc. (SanAir) today announced its accreditation by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) to provide asbestos air and bulk testing, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) analyses, at the Laboratory’s new Hamilton County, Ohio location.
“The accreditation enables SanAir to analyze samples from clients such as inspectors, contractors, environmental engineers, and state and local governments and report regarding the presence of asbestos fibers,” said Sandra Sobrino, director of the Asbestos and Materials Science Division of SanAir. “Our TEM capabilities allow analysis for immediate turnaround times for Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) projects and asbestos confirmation on difficult matrices.”
“I am proud of the hard work of our asbestos team in earning this critical accreditation, particularly Matthew Daigneault,” said SanAir’s President, Sean McGlynn. “We only signed the lease on our Cincinnati-area location in May of 2018. For our team to have not only gotten the lab built out, but also passed these tests, is commendable.”
