Multiple Chemical Sensitivity- MCS month

Don’t forget, May is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) month.

In an effort to spread MCS and chemical awareness and offer our support to MCS organizations worldwide, we have been providing tips via our website at,   Also, for the entire month of May, we will dedicate our blogs and articles to MCS and chemical awareness topics. 

MCS is a chronic, debilitating condition that occurs after high or recurrent exposure to volatile chemicals.  Symptoms include a heightened sensitivity to odors, as well as irritation of the respiratory, gastrointestinal and central nervous system.

One of the most compelling objectives of MCS Organizations worldwide is their drive to raise chemical awareness.  These organizations are coming together, seeking the identification and reduction of environmental toxins.  Chemical sensitivities will become increasingly common across the globe as many industries continue to use hazardous, unregulated chemicals.

Would you like to help us raise awareness about MCS?  It’s not too late to start, just make this MCS information ( available via your website.’s Multiple Chemical Sensitivity air purifiers allow you to offer MCS sufferers the most inert air purifier available on the market.

At, our goal is to improve Indoor Air Quality one breath at a time. This May, help us raise MCS and chemical awareness---it’s a threat to us all.

Odor control for Crime Scene Investigations and Cleanup


Exposure to chemicals, odors and biological contaminants can pose serious health consequences for personnel conducting crime scene investigations, crime scene cleanup and decontamination or hazardous material management (hazmat) . Protective air cleaning devices are vital to help minimize exposure to chemicals, odors and other pollutants as well provide a more comfortable and efficient working environment. image

We also provide air filtration for:
Forensic Labs
Odor Control
Evidence Protection

The units recommended in this section offer serious chemical, odor and particle abatement and feature deep-bed activated carbon filters and HEPA filtration. Ideal for:

  • Decomp/death/ trauma scenes
  • Chemical and biological threats
  • Meth lab cleanup
  • Extreme odor
  • Microbial contamination
  • CTS Decon
  • Situations that require negative air

Odor control for Crime Scene Investigations and Cleanup

Air Cleaning, air filtration, for Forensics Labs

Forensics labs deal with a wide range of airborne toxins

rooms and critical care environments, our new RAPs are now capturing gas
 and particle phase contaminants in a broad range of industrial, 
commercial, home and office applications

including chemicals, odors, aerosols, particulate and biological contaminants. As a result, a generically applied air cleaning solution is usually ineffective. Electrocorp provides a wide range of equipment to maintain safe, healthy and comfortable working environments that support scientific investigation.

We also provide air filtration for:
Evidence Protection
Odor Control
Crime Scene Applications

Air cleaning units and air scrubbers recommended for Forensics labs feature:

  • Deep-bed activated carbon air filters for serious chemical and odor control
  • Medical-grade HEPA filters or electrostatic particulate filters
  • Customized air flow that will not disrupt the examination process

Air Cleaning for Forensics Labs

Air Filtration for Evidence Rooms and Property Rooms

Electrocorp's air filtration systems for evidence rooms and property rooms are designed for a broad spectrum of dangerous airborne contaminants, including narcotics fumes, aspergillus mold spores, microorganisms, biohazards, chemicals, gases, odor control, and particles.

We also provide air filtration for:
Forensic Labs
Odor Control
Crime Scene Applications

These tough industrial units are designed for 24/7 continuous use in evidence rooms and property rooms of varying size and feature activated carbon and HEPA technology originally developed by the military for hazardous airborne toxins.

Currently used by law enforcement agencies across America, these air filtration units can also be custom-built to address specific air quality concerns in various storage areas and departments.


"Ventilation is of special concern with narcotics. Narcotics fumes should not be circulated within a common ventilation system."

"A narcotics storage room shall have an adequate ventilation system consistent with legal mandates that will not impact other areas of the building. Always consider a negative pressure system."
