How Does Asbestos Sample Testing work?
|You’ll fill out the chain of custody form for your samples, and transport the sample to us. Your job is now done.|
|We analyze your sample under a microscope for characteristics related to asbestos.|
|BULK SAMPLING: Depending on what the sample is (ceramic tile vs. drywall), we may crush the sample into smaller pieces or liquefy it before analyzing it under the microscope.|
|AIR SAMPLING: Air samples are collected using a very thin sponge (the filter inside the cassette). We remove the sponge and cut it into smaller pieces. 0.01 ff/cc (fibres per cubic centimetre of air) is the maximum amount of fibres allowed by law.|
|The sponge (filter) is then dissolved using chemicals, which leaves only the asbestos (or nothing if the sample is uncontaminated). After analyzing the residual material with a microscope, we’ll provide you with a reading of the concentration of asbestos.|
|We’ll deliver the detailed sample results by phone, FAX or email.|
Asbestos Testing Types: Bulk & Air Sampling
Whether we’re using bulk samples or air samples, the goal of testing is to find the number of asbestos fibres in your sample. If a particular concentration of fibres is present, it’s positive for asbestos.
Both PLM and PCM testing allows us to count the fibres in your bulk sample at a microscopic level so that we can find even any amount of asbestos in the sample.
