When there’s no room for error, choose the industry standard for lead paint inspection

Government regulations, such as the U.S. EPA-issued Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, have increased public awareness of the need for lead paint testing. Lead poisoning is a well-known health threat to children, but lead exposure can cause serious issues for adults as well, including high blood pressure and dementia. Environmental professionals involved in demolition, renovation, or repair projects are particularly vulnerable to inhaling dust contaminated with lead or other toxins such as Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) metals.

The well-documented effects of lead exposure place this hazard among the highest regulatory priorities. Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers meet the rigorous demands of lead paint testing and are the only lead paint analyzers available that are supported by an ideal Performance Characteristic Sheet (PCS). What's more, our analyzers address the safe work practices required in many commercial and industrial structures, and have demonstrated proficiency in the ELPAT Program. 

When it comes to measuring lead paint levels and environmental contaminants, choose the same analyzers used by the U.S. EPA and other regulatory agencies.

  • No inconclusive readings
  • No substrate correction
  • No false positive/false negative readings.
