We can test for Benzene. Realtime. We test to 0.003 ppm

Benzene is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor. It evaporates quickly and dissolves in water. Benzene is highly flammable and very toxic. Eating foods or drinking liquids containing high levels of benzene can cause vomiting, irritation of the stomach, dizziness, sleepiness, convulsions, rapid heart rate, coma, and death. Inhaling or breathing benzene for sustained periods affects the tissues that form blood cells, especially the bone marrow. This can disrupt normal blood production and lead to anemia or cause excessive bleeding. Benzene exposure can harm the immune system, increasing the chance for infection and perhaps lowering the body's defense against cancer.

We can test for Formaldehyde. Realtime.

Formaldehyde is also a by-product of combustion and certain other natural processes. Thus, it may be present in substantial concentrations both indoors and outdoors. In homes, the most significant sources of formaldehyde is usually pressed wood made using adhesives that contain urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins. The EPA officially says this about Formaldehyde:

"Formaldehyde, a colorless, pungent-smelling gas, can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing in some humans exposed at elevated levels (above 0.1 parts per million). High concentrations may trigger attacks in people with asthma. There is evidence that some people can develop a sensitivity to formaldehyde. It has also been shown to cause cancer in animals and may cause cancer in humans. Health effects include eye, nose, and throat irritation; wheezing and coughing; fatigue; skin rash; severe allergic reactions. May cause cancer. May also cause other effects listed under "organic gases." EPA's Integrated Risk Information System profile - http://www.epa.gov/iris/subst/0419.htm
