Solvent Screen

At Healthscreen, we offer comprehensive solvent monitoring services to assess and manage employee exposure to various solvents used in different industries. Solvents are commonly used in a wide range of industries for cleaning, degreasing, paint stripping, adhesive application, ink production, pesticide manufacturing, and toiletry formulation. Solvent screen testing is particularly suitable when multiple solvents are utilised or when there is uncertainty about the specific chemicals that require monitoring.

How We Support You

Our comprehensive Solvent Monitoring services utilise the power of biological monitoring through urine sampling. This approach allows us to screen for multiple solvents simultaneously, providing a holistic assessment of employee exposure risks. Our specialised laboratories analyse the urine samples, enabling us to identify the presence and levels of various solvents in the body accurately.

Our Solvent Monitoring programme covers a wide range of chemicals, including but not limited to benzene, dichloromethane, ethylbenzene, MEK, MIBK, styrene, trichloroethylene, toluene, and xylene. By conducting urine sampling, we can effectively detect these solvents and provide valuable insights into their absorption levels.

Our experienced team will work closely with your organization to ensure a seamless monitoring process. We offer flexible options, whether conducting the monitoring on-site or through our convenient kit delivery service. With our kits, employees can easily collect urine samples at their workplace, maintaining confidentiality and minimizing disruption to their daily activities.

Once the urine samples are collected, they are analysed in our specialised laboratories by skilled professionals. Our state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques enable us to accurately measure the concentration of solvents in the samples. The results are then interpreted, and detailed reports are generated, providing a comprehensive overview of the exposure levels for each solvent.

Our reports offer actionable insights, identifying any potential risks associated with solvent exposure. We provide clear recommendations for control measures, such as engineering controls, workplace modifications, personal protective equipment, or employee training programs, to mitigate exposure risks effectively.
