Air Testing

Our analysis is primarily done using phase contrast microscopy (PCM), as outlined in the asbestos Health and Safety Guidelines 248. As required, it’s fully UKAS accredited. However, differentiation of fibres by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) can be organised if pre-arranged.

The various types of testing for asbestiform fibres offered are:

  • Reassurance air testing: to test that residual fibre concentrations are below the clearance indicator level or to ascertain whether airborne fibres are present in a given location.
  • Leak testing: During controlled removal works to ensure enclosure integrity remains.
  • Background testing: Prior to asbestos remedial or removal works commencing to ascertain background levels.
  • Personal air testing: Again, a number of applications including:
    • To select RPE and ensure it remains adequate for ongoing works
    • For medical surveillance records
    • For method risk assessments
    • To ensure work control measures are adequate and remain effective throughout
