West Palm Beach, FL, July 13th
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is excited to announce the opening of our newest laboratory in West Palm Beach. The addition of this new location will become the fifth laboratory in Florida as well as the 45th laboratory nationwide. EMSL’s West Palm Beach laboratory will be offering extensive testing services for mold and asbestos.
Anytime there is a flooding event, water leak, broken plumbing or humidity issues it can lead to the growth of mold indoors. At elevated levels, mold spores can be a respiratory concern. Mold can even cause asthma attacks in people with the condition who are allergic to mold. Exposure to mold can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of individuals whether or not they are allergic to it. Asbestos on the other hand is a mineral used for the construction of buildings or homes typically found in the siding materials, roofing materials, textured ceilings and more. The symptoms of asbestos can range from shortness of breath, chest pain, tightness in your chest as well as nail deformities.
“It’s important for those who have mold allergies or other symptoms to test their indoor air for potential mold problems,” said Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., Vice President of Microbiology and Life Sciences at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Testing will help pinpoint and target the affected areas for proper remediation. It is always prudent to test a home before purchasing as well.”
EMSL’s West Palm Beach laboratory can now accept mold and asbestos samples. The laboratory is certified by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) to perform asbestos testing in bulk materials. The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) has also certified this location for the mold testing in bulk, surface testing and air samples.
The new laboratory is located at 1860 Okeechobee Road, Unit 101, in West Palm Beach, FL. They can be reached by calling (561) 801-7262 or by email at email@example.com.
