We conduct air testing in scenarios where this is deemed necessary and have a great depth of experience in this process.
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 asbestos air testing for asbestiform fibres offered are:
To test that residual fibre concentrations are below the clearance indicator level or to ascertain whether airborne fibres are present in a given location. Find out more.
Prior to asbestos remedial or removal works commencing to ascertain background levels. Find out more.
This has a number of applications including:
During controlled removal works to ensure enclosure integrity remains.
