About Our LEED Kit


"Unbelievable response! I requested equipment/media for 40 LEED sample locations on a Friday and received everything the next day (Saturday). Everything was shipped correctly and worked properly. This could only be accomplished by Galson; they have the best customer service that you can imagine. Tonya and the staff are to be commended."

Ken Warren, NYS DOC

"I've just completed a multiple floor LEED IAQ testing project and used Galson's all-in-one LEED testing kit.  Having Galson on my team gave me the confidence that the necessary testing media and equipment would arrive on time, everytime.  I've never dealt with a company who had so many competent customer service representatives.  Thank you for all that you've done!"

Dan Alexander, EFI Global

As I have come to expect, your service is excellent. I am asked all of the time by other labs about switching to them. My response is always the Galson is the best lab with the best service. They are easy to work with; the pricing structure is easy to use when we are on a short deadline to send out a proposal, and; the reps always get media out to us when we need it. Why would I switch?

"I was so very pleased with the customer service I received from Galson. UPS didn't get our original shipment to us in time. I notified Tonya Lancaster of Galson about the delay of shipment. She didn't miss a beat and offered to send a new shipment in its place to ensure delivery. It was decided that FedEx would be a better fit for our company and she even offered to note to use FedEx for all future shipments.

Scott Hartness, Business Safety Services, Inc.

"I have been in the industrial hygiene consulting business for over 25 years, using a variety of IH labs with mixed results in years past.  However, all it took was to try Galson labs one time back in the early 1990s to find a solid, reliable, partner for the future.  Galson is an easy company to work with since their customer service is second to none.  I always feel welcomed when I call, no matter the time of day or the complexity of my request.  This is important to our company since we make every effort to respond quickly to customer requests.  Galson helps us do that efficiently and in turn makes us look good to our clients.  The value of that service is immeasurable.   The culture of excellent customer service is obviously well-established at Galson as all employees, new and experienced, follow the same approach.  Of course last but not least the quality of reports and accurancy of invoices is excellent.  Keep it up Galson, you are doing a great job!"

Kevin Cosgrove, Schaeffler Group USA

Tonya Lancaster is one of the most professional and pleasant persons I have ever worked with over the many years I have ordered equipment and analytical services and supplies. She has a friendly voice and is very positive. It seems in this world we find fewer and fewer people who have her spark and this is sad. I consider her a friend in the business. I do not forget her knowledge and technical abilities either. All pluses.

Timothy Grobe, Cross Environmental

Bridgett and Heidi were extremely helpful in providing a quote and answering questions. I recieved a call to verify rush analysis request and discuss additional fees. They were both very professional.

They have never steered me wrong. Ease of ordering sampling equipment through the rental agreement has been flawless.

Barry Kelly, Ashland, Inc.

"Perfect job as always. I appreciate your equipment because it makes my work easy. The equipment you rent out is also top of the line so it is easy to use. Having the equipment calibrated with a document that indicates that fact also saves me time and ensures that the data is correct and repeatable."

We're a small customer, and i've always had the best service since switching to your lab a few years ago. Air sampling here is hit and miss, and our department has to share the few pumps and calibrators we have between multiple sites. Your pump loan program has been dynamite.

During Our Galson IH-Live Chats


As always, the order was turned around quicly, which helped us meet a tight emergency deadline for the project. The IH chat option was also beneficial.

Michael Baltrusaitis, Cocciardi & Associates, Inc.

I used the on-line chat feature. It was a great experience.

Patrick Robinson, Chubb Group of Insurance Companies

Charlene M: Hi, how may I help you?

Visitor: Hi  I need to do some STEL sampling for ozone - what is the most sensitive method you have for that?

Charlene M: You could use either a treated filter with a pump or an Assay badge. Let me calculate the RL for a 15 minute STEL to see which would be lower. Can you hold for a moment?

Visitor: sure

Visitor: thanks

Charlene M: thanks for waiting. If you use the filter and pump,your RL would be 0.5 mg/m3. If you use the Assay badge and we subcontract that to Assay for analysis, then your RL for that would be 0.4 mg/m3.

Visitor: is the filter RL based on 0.5 lpm, and sample volume of 7.5 l?

Charlene M: yes

Visitor: what would the AT RL be for 2 hours?

Charlene M: that would be about 0.05 mg/m3

Visitor: thanks

Charlene M: you're welcome

Caroline: Hi, how may I help you?

Visitor: Hello, I have a Noise Pro Series Noise Dosimeter and on the QuestSuite Report that printed up it gave me a TWA for the OSHA HC and a separate TWA for the OSHA PEL.

Visitor: Can you tell me why it does this

Visitor: The TWA's differ as well

Caroline: OSHA HC is for OSHA hearing conservation, and PEL is for the permissible exposure limit. These two parameters have different specifications for data according to OSHA.

Visitor: Whats the difference in the specifications

Caroline: According to the Quest user manual, the difference between then is only the threshold. HC is set to 80 dB and PEL is set to 90 dB. The exchange rate, criterion leve, criterion time, and upper limit are all the same for these two.

Visitor: So which TWA should we comply with?

Caroline: Both. The OSHA PEL was set originally and then the law was later amended to add a Hearing Conservation Amendment which requires a hearing conservation program.

Caroline: A hearing conservation program is required whenever employee exposures exceed 85 dB as an 8-hour TWA.

Caroline: This information can be found in 29 CFR 1910.95

Visitor: Thank You

Caroline: You are welcome.

"IH Live Online Chat is fantastic!"

Scott Anderson, Thermatru Corp.

Ed Stuber, CIH: Hi How may I help you?

Visitor: Hi Ed. I have quick question regarding the 3m OVM sampler.

Ed Stuber, CIH: sure - what is the question?

Visitor: Is this a passive or active sampler? Tube or badge? Can I take an eight hour sample with this or is it only rated for four?

Ed Stuber, CIH: It is a passive sampling device - no pumps are needed. You can use them for 8 hours for most compounds. Beware - not all VOCs can be collected on these badges.

Visitor: Great! Thanks very much. One more quick question then. (Sorry) the OVM solvent chart has PGMMEEACT listed. Just to confirm, is this propyleneglycol monomethyl ether acetate?

Ed Stuber, CIH: yes it is.

Visitor: Thanks again Ed. I like the live chat feature!!!!!

Ed Stuber, CIH: glad you like it - thanks - we like it too!

I have used the Pump Loan Service 4 times in the last couple of months. This is a great program. I have recommended Galson Labs to others in the aggregate industry. Keep up the great work.

This is the first time I have used Galson and the experience was great. Thanks for all the help! (11/16/2011)

Patrick Erisman, Cincinnati Insurance Co.

"I was very happy with the service, as this was my first experience. I would refer Galson to clients for their analytical needs. All the forms, labels, even the box for the return of the samples were provided. I have not experienced this from any other laboratory before."

Nira Cooray, Apex Enviro Safety and Health, Inc.

"As a first time customer I found the service excellent and the representatives from Galson were friendly and patient. They helped me order the correct media and pumps for my monitoring event. Galson does an excellent job providing customer service and quality equipment."

Mike Fulkerson, URS Corporation

"I have never used IH equipment before and the customer support was excellent and guided me through every detail. In addition the free pump loan program was an inexpensive way to get the equipment I needed here and complete my sampling needs. I will definitely use Galson in the future for any IH needs."

Michael Conti, SSM Industries

"I have always had a good experience when working with Galson. Customer service is quick to respond and makes an honest effort to be helpful. Setting up my new account and rental agreement was easy and fast. This was an excellent experience, and I will definitely look to Galson first for future equipment rentals."
