When air quality is good, the air is clear and contains minute amounts of solid particles and chemical pollutants.  Poor air quality which contains high levels of pollutants is hazy and dangerous to health and the environment.  According to the Air Quality Index, air quality is based on the concentration of pollutants in the air at a location 

Because air is always moving, air quality can change on a day-to-day or hour-to-hour basis.  In a certain location, the air quality is determined by how air moves through an area and how people interact with it. 


We Offer  domestic and industrial air quality monitoring  services that help you measure the a level of pollutants in the air.  You can also take the following steps to improve the air quality and reduce your IAQ-related health risks. 

  1. ENSURE PROPER VENTILATION: By increasing the amount of fresh air entering the room, the levels of pollutants in the air can be kept to a minimum.  Whenever the weather is clear, keep the windows and doors open or turn on the air conditioner and open the vent.  Bathroom and kitchen fans also increase ventilation and help get rid of pollutants.  Always follow manufacturer instructions when using products or appliances that release pollutants into the air. 

  1. CHANGE THE  FILTERS: Central heaters and air conditioners have filters that trap dust and other pollutants in the air.  Change or clean them regularly according to the instructions given on the package or you can enlist the help  of  ambient and indoor air quality monitoring  services who will do it for you 

  1. ADJUST THE HUMIDITY:  The level of humidity inside the room can also affect the concentrations of indoor air pollutants.  For e.g., high humidity keeps the air moist which increases the growth of Mould. 

Keep the indoor humidity between 30-50% and use moisture or humidity assuage which is available at a hardware store to gauge the humidity.  If the humidity is less, you can use a vaporizer or humidifier to increase it.  On the other hand, if the humidity is high, open the windows if the weather is not humid.  If it is hot, turn on the air conditioner or adjust the settings on the humidifier. 

At SMSLA global, we rely on an end-to-end approach for complete ambient and indoor air quality monitroing. We use the latest technology to analyze high-end chemical, microbiological, physical, and instrumental parameters in state-of-the-art facilities.  We are proactive in ensuring that our services are high quality, adhere to safety standards, and protect the environment.

Environment testing labs are utilized by businesses to obtain objective analytical data on the quality of its product or processes. Some companies use the services of these labs for product certification which can be a marketing tool while others use it to test the water and soil quality before finalizing a land or facility purchase.  Whatever be the reason, the services these laboratories offer are of great help to businesses in a variety of industry sectors. 

There are  many  reasons why businesses choose independent  labs for testing, 

  1. Objectivity:  Tested by an independent environmental testing lab is to provide assurance that the test results are objective and not altered due to the influence or guidance of interested parties.  Independent labs exist mainly to provide objective analytical data on the quality of a particular product or process.  These labs document the internal processes they follow to ensure objectivity and accuracy.    

  1. FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Finance plays a key role in the decision-making of a firm while choosing an outside lab for testing. Small businesses will likely have a lot of things they would like to spend on like procuring new equipment,  advertising and workforce or facility expansion. These businesses would be better off financially if they secured the services of our environmental testing labs in Bangalore rather than setting up internal testing facilities. Many businesses that establish internal testing facilities do so without taking into consideration the additional costs associated with it like top-level management salaries and benefits, professional services like legal or accounting, depreciation and interest expense.   

  1. SAFETY: Companies that manufacture hazardous materials prefer to utilize the services of an independent lab to minimize the danger of in-house exposure to potentially hazardous agents. 

  1. FORMULATION OF TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: One of the main functions of environmental testing labs in India is to formulate detailed technical specifications of the various advanced instruments which help in analyzing trace metals like mercy, total organic carbon, organic halides and the equipment needed for these instruments.    

Environment testing labs are responsible for the improvement in the health of individuals, wildlife and the environment. By providing technical data and analysis, they provide a solution on the steps to be taken to preserve the well-being of the area.   

SMSLA’s testing labs are accredited by national as well as international bodies.  While performing indoor air quality inspection, we use highly sophisticated and sensitive instruments like LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS by which we are able to identify and quantify trace levels of many organic and inorganic pollutants.

Also we do leachability studies of solid wastes   

We have our environmental testing labs in Chennai which are solely focused on residual analysis for pesticides, antibodies and metabolites. 

When it comes to food, we all want to ensure that consumers get the best quality products.  From size, shape, color, and consistency to the taste of the product, farmers are always looking to grow the best crops and producers want to produce top-quality products. 

With that comes the responsibility of managing both the safety and quality of fresh food products.  The majority of the world's food is grown on farms.  That is why it is pesticides are needed to protect the crops from damage and prevent crop losses due to diseases. 

While pesticides are necessary to ensure the safety of food, it is equally important to take care that they are free from pesticide residues.  Here is where pesticide testing labs come into the picture. 

Pesticide Residue Detection Methods 

  1. Folded Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry 

GC/MS is the most commonly used method for pesticide residue analysis.  For higher sensitivity and accuracy, ion mode is used to confirm the target substance based on the retention time, ion characteristics and ion ratio relationships.      

  1. Tandem Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS-MS) 

LC-MS/MS is a method identical to GC-MS but it uses a tandem mass spectrometer which makes it possible to select specific analytes for individual fragmentation which allows for more complex mixtures to be analyzed easily. 

This method uses a beam of electrons to ionize analytes but the instrument can also ionize an intermediate gas which ionizes the analyte in secondary reactions.  This method minimizes the decomposition of analytes during the ionization stage and allows for more sensitive fragmentation during the MS/MS stages. 

What Are Pesticide Labs? 

Pesticide residue testing laboratory analyzes food products to ascertain the presence of harmful residues from foreign substances.  The Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) defines it and the Food and Drug Administration(EDA) enforces it. 

These labs evaluate and perform in-depth analyses to ensure that the food products that are being sent out  meet the Maximum residue limits set by the EPA for safe consumption  

The tolerances set by the various national and International authorities like FSSAI , APEDA . AGMARK BIS and EU  are the standards for the acceptable level of pesticides that can remain in or on a product. Pesticides are defined as  “many kinds of ingredients used in products such as insecticides, fungicides, rodenticides, insect repellants, weed killers, antimicrobials and swimming pool chemicals that are designed to prevent, destroy, repel or reduce pests of any sort” 

SMSLA labs are accredited by various national and international bodies including NABL use sophisticated and high sensitive equipment such as LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS to identify and quantify trace amounts of multiple pesticide residues in a single run. 

We have the technical expertise, knowledge and infrastructure to cater to  the various regulations.  Moreover, we have a huge catalogue of pesticide standards to identify even minute levels of pesticides in all types of products.  We have an excellent track record of using globally  accepted test methods which gives us  as well as our customers confidence in our test methods and results  Through process optimization and by using the latest instruments, we ensure a quick turnaround time and accurate results without compromising the quality of the test results. 

Ever wondered why your quality analysis team requires multiple environments like development, test and production? How much money did you invest in setting up the test environment? What is the ROI of the test environment? It is possible to answer these questions by deciding whether you allowed users to be down during business hours because a change did not work out as it should have.  Downtime can affect the cost of your business massively which can be avoided if money is invested in environmental testing labs in India.

In the agricultural industry, pesticides are utilized to increase the production of agricultural products and their yield by eliminating the damage-causing harmful bugs, fungi, and weeds. What pesticides testing laboratory does? It determines the concentration of pesticide residue present in the crop attained after the harvest. These testing laboratories also determine whether the pesticide residue levels are below the respective regulatory limits or are compliant with the regulators.   

What is the role of the pesticide residue testing laboratory? 

Pesticide residue testing is a laboratory-based examination process that helps identify the pesticide residue levels in a diverse range of food products. At laboratories, an in-depth chemical and microbiological analysis are conducted in order to measure the pesticide residue levels in all types of food products.  

According to the existing regulatory structure, it is essential for food producers, manufacturers, and suppliers to acquire in-depth pesticide residue testing reports prior to shipping their products to the end consumer. The pesticides testing laboratory not only help secure consumer from potentially harmful health consequence caused by chemicals but also provide confidence to food manufacturers and producers regarding their product ingredients.  

Methods of pesticide residue testing: 

It is difficult to conduct pesticide residue analysis with just one technique because there are different kinds of pesticides used during the agricultural process. Moreover, pesticides are further bifurcated into diverse sub-categories and groups based on their chemical compositions. Highly sophisticated  analytical methods are employed for pesticide residue testing laboratory to accurately measure the concentration of pesticides. According to the authorized and verified pesticides testing laboratory,  gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry are the two most commonly used techniques for measuring the concentration of pesticides in agricultural samples in bulk. Another scientific method used to detect pesticides is direct analysis in real-time DART, which is usually required by the regulatory agencies.  


There are numerous benefits, which  food product manufacturers can attain from a pesticide residue testing laboratory.

From cozy single apartments to gigantic spacious offices, having pure, clean, healthy indoor air can significantly increase the overall health and well-being of the resident.  

Frequent Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and testing are essential for both homes and businesses in order to distinctively identify the presence of contaminants and the density of the contaminants in indoor air - these metrics directly impact your health and work efficiency in the long run.  

The following list describes six salient reasons why you need indoor air quality monitoring and testing services: 

Enormous health benefits 

Some of the prominent symptoms of health problems caused by poor air quality are irritated eyes, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, burning nose, and throat. But all of these health issues can be prevented with the help of air quality inspection services. Homes and business owners can drastically reduce the risk of both chronic disease and short-term infections by appointing reliable air quality inspection services to test the indoor air quality, identifying the problem, and taking immediate measures to mitigate health-related risks. Several indoor air quality inspection services also provide suggestions for improving the air quality at home or at your office such as changing the existing cleaning products, improving ventilation, and having frequent HVAC equipment service by maintenance service providers.  

For improved comfort 

No matter where you are, be it home or office, filtered and fresh air quality can set your mood. Frequent air quality inspections help you attain the peace of mind you need to improve your comfort level and happiness quotient. In fact, indoor air quality inspection can determine exactly what are the parameters limiting the comfort of your home and how it can be improved. 

Lower electric bills 

Poor ventilation often leads to increased strain on cooling systems which eventually leads to more energy consumption and higher utility bills. A proper ventilation medium that allows air to flow and reduces the concentration of indoor pollutants is crucial. Most indoor air quality inspection service providers suggest frequent maintenance of HVAC to keep the system running efficiently and to keep the electric bill low. 

To have a better working environment that elevates performance and productivity 

It is estimated that a lack of indoor air quality inspection and poor air quality can drastically reduce the performance and productivity of the teams by up to 7 - 8%. With thorough air quality inspection, improved comfort and cleaner air, the productivity of the employee tends to increase as well. 

Reduction in absenteeism rate at offices 

Reduction in the frequency of illness caused due to poor air quality tends to decrease with periodic indoor air quality inspection and treatment efforts. Such air quality inspection initiatives lower the absence rates and exponentially increase employee performance. It is becoming increasingly important for organizations to determine employee preference towards the levels related to temperature, humidity, and other crucial factors in order to provide the necessary comfort and reduce the absenteeism rate.  

Protecting home and office 

Indoor air quality inspection services help owners protect their homes and offices against Volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, mold, mildew, bacteria, pest droppings, and pesticides - that are usually not visible to naked eyes but do exist in the indoor air and are harmful to your health. 

However, residential and commercial spaces are usually tested by air quality inspection services to identify the levels of chemical emissions such as SO2, CO2, CO, NOx, and others, level of moisture and humidity, and level of biological contaminants such as mold, bacteria, fungus, allergens, particulate matter such as PM 2.5, PM 10, dust, including temperature - inside a room as well as to eliminate them gradually.

Nutrition analysis and testing could be required by Food product manufacturing companies for a diverse range of reasons ranging from informative purposes to statutory compliances. Moreover, food safety and inspection services are also important because, on a large scale, the nutritional value of food and food products has a direct impact on the health and well-being of every person who consumes them all across the globe.  

A complete nutritional analysis of food products manufactured, sold, or supplied helps ensure that the food product is compliant with various national and international regulations and standards. The food quality inspection and tests that are conducted for compliance purposes generally cover legal requirements related to the food products, and associated health, and safety legislation.  

Usually, all kinds of food products ranging from oils, fats, and emulsions, bakery products, processed foods/ready-to-eat foods, infant nutrition products, spices, condiments & herbal products, nuts & nut products, milk & milk products, cereals, pulses, including processed/ raw fruits and vegetables are tested for quality purposes under  food  quality inspection services. The food quality control courses tests are conducted to check if the proportion of fats, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, sugars, vitamins, minerals, and other traceable elements are within the food safety benchmark. 

Determining the proportion of mineral content in the food product.  

From building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses, minerals play a crucial role in all body functions. In short, it helps us stay healthy. In order to assess the proportion of minerals in food products, food safety training, and testing facilities conduct two major kinds of tests - the first test is conducted on microminerals which consists of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur - the second test is conducted on trace minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride, and selenium.    

The fatty acid composition analysis of the food product.  

The food quality and inspection services conduct tests on fatty acids to attain a complete profile. After the test, food safety inspection services classify fatty acids according to their chain length ranging from short-chain consisting of 2 to 4 carbons, a middle chain consisting of 5 to 10 carbons, and a long chain consisting of more than 11 carbons. As the consumer demand and intake of fatty acid products increase, the need for proper quality testing facilities is also expected to rise in the near future. 

Determining The proportion of vitamin content in the food product. 

For body growth, a proportional intake of 13 major types of vitamins is necessary. Vitamin A, C, D, E, K, and B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, and folate) are the 13 major types of vitamins that our body needs. The role of food safety training and testing services is to conduct several sensitive, most reliable scientific testing procedures and to determine if the proportion of vitamins in the product is accurate and adheres to the company's claim. 

Different businesses opt for food quality control courses/ services for different reasons.  Multiple businesses in the food production and supply industry subscribe to food quality control courses/ tests/ services because government authorities mandatorily ask for detailed nutrient content data on top of the food product labels before shipping. On top of that, the label information should strictly adhere to the compliance parameters regarding the presentation of the nutritional information on the labels. On the other hand, numerous countries ask for nutrition data/ information only if a claim is made by the consumer. There are business organizations in the food and beverages industry that prefer to opt for food safety training/ inspection services only for annual verification of the nutritional value of a food product after or during the claim period.  

SMSLA global aims to deliver holistic quality services in testing, inspection, training, and advisory services in the field of food, water, environment, and materials with state-of-the-art facilities. Our services offer businesses independent, globally-trusted test results. We hold decades of experience and scientific expertise in the nutrition value testing and inspection industry.

Food safety is vital for every consumer irrespective of the food’s, origin & further processing. More than that, the food safety inspection services test the food product to verify whether they are in accordance with the global food quality standard by employing standard scientific procedures. 

Customer dissatisfaction due to poor food quality can completely ruin an organization's brand image and reputation.

The sophisticated inspection process, nutritional labelling, shelf-life analyses, and sensory evaluation are integral parts of a comprehensive food safety training program. 

In nutritional labelling, the labels on food products should consist of accurate nutritional parameters that enable consumers to make informed choices and maintain transparency among consumers as well as guarantee the safety of the product. 

Depending on the analytical, chemical, microbiological, and sensory test, the shelf-life of a product is determined as well as analyzed by the food safety and inspection services. It also helps the consumer make informed buying decisions - eventually leading to fewer complaint records.   

Sensory evaluation is a type of testing method where trained professionals analyze the food product by their five senses viz smell, touch, auditory, taste, and sight. It is useful for gauging responses offered in form of objective and subjective feedback data about a food product or a wide range of food productions prior to launch in the market. 

By hiring reputable food safety inspection services, assurance can be offered to the consumer that throughout the supply chain and production process ranging from the growing, processing, procuring, to shipping processes, the food item is being regularly inspected, monitored, and tested by the highly trained and reliable third-party testing Laboratory before it reaches the supermarket shelves/ consumers.

Indoor air pollution has become a matter of huge concern for both residents and employers. Currently, it is identified as a major health hazard by all countries. Indoor air quality inspection services protect occupants from diseases and disorders most suffer as a result of excessive indoor pollution. As a resident or a worker, people spend most of their time indoors, hence it becomes extremely crucial to maintain good indoor air quality and sustain its quality in the long term. 

According to an indoor air quality inspection survey, poor indoor air quality has been found to be closely correlated with both Sick Building Syndrome (SBS ) and Building-Related Illness  (BRI). SBS includes symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, dry throat, cough, watery eyes, and BRI including symptoms such as legionnaire’s disease, allergic alveolitis, pneumonia, occupational asthma, and even certain cancers. 

Parameters such as Carbon dioxide, relative humidity, temperature, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, formaldehyde, oxygen, ozone, ammonia, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are examined by the SMSLA  air quality inspection team equipped with state-of-the-art testing facilities in order to determine the quality of air indoor. 

For instance, if the levels of carbon monoxide (CO) are below the permissible limits prescribed in the standard guidelines, but on the other hand, the levels of total volatile organic compounds TVOCs are way above the permissible limits, then the indoor air quality inspection services would rate of the air quality - poor. 

Apart from chemical factors, residents and employees also suffer from respiratory disorders due to biological factors such as mould and moisture. Fungi and bacteria are far more likely to thrive in highly humid environments where air circulation is stagnant - eventually, creating mycotoxins and endotoxins that severely impact occupants' health. It is known that better air quality inspection drastically reduces certain symptoms of asthma and other respiratory diseases.  

In the case of indoor air, inappropriate ventilation systems often lead to the accumulation of pollutants indoors. And it also results in a lower exchange of indoor air with fresh air, thus making occupants prone to getting affected by indoor air pollutants. 

With the help of effective indoor air quality inspection and monitoring systems in place, employers are able to ensure that employees can productively work in healthier spaces with cleaner air. When employers offer an environment that is free from potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants, it always results in higher retention levels, increased productivity, and a steep decline in absenteeism. 

Pollen, dust, fungi, clean solvents, formaldehyde, paint, and perfumes are some of the major factors that severely impact air quality. It is hard to control them entirely but can be kept under check with air quality inspection services.

Material testing is important for all industries as it ensures the quality and safety of the end product.  Usually it is done at the end of the manufacturing process.  It is better to test individual parts of a product rather than the whole product at  one time.  Here are a few ways by which you can determine the quality of a  material  

There are many types of material testing that can be done on products.  If your company doesn’t have the facilities for testing, you can outsource it to material testing laboratoriesHere are a few types of material testing 

  • TENSILE TESTING: Tensile testing is done to check how a material behaves when axial loads are applied to it.  This type of testing is mostly done on plastic, metal, rubber and fabric materials.  For checking the tensile strength, the material is exposed to both high and low temperatures. 

  • STRESS TESTING: Stress testing is done to determine a material’s ability to resist compressive  force applied to break it.  The time period force which the force is resisted is also  recorded.   

  • BEND TESTING: For testing the flexibility of a product, a bend test is done.  There are two  types of bend testing that can be done in a material testing lab  namely 3 point and 4 point.  In this type of testing, either the load measurement or the breaking point of a material is determined.   

  • BOND STRENGTH TESTING: Bond strength testing involves determining the amount of stress require to break the adhesive bond between two materials.  This type of test is mostly done on orthodontics and medical adhesives.   

Here are some other useful tips that you can take to determine the quality of a material.   


Material testing is also known as inbound or receiving  inspect here are some steps that can be followed before the actual inspection.   

The receiving department in your organization will already have its own processes in place  which might include verifying and recording the quantity of material received, checking the order purchase number and verifying whether the order is complete 


It is always a good idea to take photos and videos of the material after you receive it.  There are many workflow management tools  that enable you to tag the photos you take for easy storage in inspection forms.   


This is a critical step that needs to be taken.  Check the specifications of the project to confirm whether the material you received from material testing labs in India meets the required specifications.  Any part or component whether liquid or metal that does not meet the standards should never pass inspection 

Once you know the specifications of the project, you can confirm whether the materials meet the contract requirements and purchase order 

There are other different types of testing that can be done in a material testing lab   like shear test, peel test, tear strength testing, creep resistance and elastic limit testing.   

SMSLA Global is an accredited material testing laboratory.  Our material testing services include food packaging material testing for seafood and other sectors.  We have our laboratories are in Ahmedabad, Coimbatore, Cochin, Mumbai, Hyderabad,  Chennai, Coimbatore, and  Visakhapatnam.
