Lead Paint Inspection
Government regulations, increased public awareness, and legal action have all driven requirements for the identification of lead hazards in the environment.
Public health officials, environmental professionals, and community activists face an overwhelming challenge: pinpoint lead’s location in the environment, identify the sources of contamination, and confirm that clearance criteria have been achieved after abatement. Thermo Scientific Niton x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers quickly identify and quantify lead in virtually all sample types: paint, consumer goods, soil, sediment, dust, air, and more – essentially bringing the lab to the field. Supported by a Performance Characteristic Sheet (PCS) documenting no inconclusive readings, no need for substrate correction, and no false positives/false negative readings, the Niton XLp 300 Series can determine in seconds whether lead is positive or negative. All of our analyzers include fully customizable data fields for rapid entry of sample location/condition and site conditions, simplifying reporting and maximizing inspector productivity.
