Asbestos sample testing is the process of testing a sample of suspect asbestos containing material for asbestos material or fibres. Asbestos samples are analysed by EMS using stereo microscopy, polarised light microscopy and dispersion staining. We are also able to offer water absorption testing (water absorption is a non-accredited activity).Request a quote
Asbestos sample testing is generally required to ascertain if asbestos is present in materials which have been sampled and suspected to contain asbestos.
This can be as part of an asbestos survey (bulk sampling) or a singular sample (single sample) of a material which is suspected to contain asbestos.
If analysis of the samples demonstrates that asbestos is present, the analysis will also identify what type of asbestos is present within the sample.
EMS’s highly qualified analysts have years of experience analysing asbestos samples and the wider asbestos industry. This allows us to provide tailored and bespoke solutions to help clients seek the best remedial actions and solve often unique and complex asbestos problems.
