Through our global network of testing experts and analytical equipment including chromatography (HPLC, GC, GC/MS) and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS, GFA, FIAS), Our goal is to provide test services as efficiently as possible to maximize our customers' profits. For more information about our services, contact one of our experts today.
Note: this service is for Research Use Only and Not intended for clinical use.
Because of its lightweight and resilience to chemicals, electricity, and heat, asbestos has historically been employed extensively in the building sector. The usage of asbestos has significantly decreased throughout time as a result of awareness that it is a dangerous chemical that, if handled improperly, can result in serious health issues. Customers can obtain expert asbestos testing services from Alfa Chemistry. Customers can streamline their business demands by sending us all of their asbestos samples.
Customers will receive the high-quality customer service they expect and want with our full-service solution. Because of this, Alfa Chemistry is the company that environmental consultants and IAQ experts trust for asbestos analysis. Alfa Chemistry guarantees that you'll always get high-quality analysis, first-rate support, and dependable dependability.
|PCM Air||Airborne Fiber Count|
Air samples are examined during the analysis using a phase contrast microscope (PCM). It is mostly employed to calculate the concentration of fibers present in the air.
The technique does not distinguish between fibers that are asbestos and those that are not. Fibers less than 0.25 microns in diameter will not be detected by this method.
|OSHA and TWA||In this analysis, asbestos and other fibers are detected in air samples using PCM and NIOSH 7400, and a time-weighted average is computed (TWA). The most common goal for performing TWA sampling is to comply with OSHA limits.|
|PLM Bulk||EPA 200, 400, 1000 Point Count|
This analysis includes asbestos testing of bulk building materials by performing 200, 400 or 1000 point counts.
The method has detection limits of 0.5% (200 points), 0.25% (400 points), and 0.1% (1000 points), respectively.
|Gravimetric 400, 1000 Point Count|
The analysis includes an assessment of organic constituents, inorganic acid soluble and insoluble constituents, and asbestos concentrations based on 400 or 1000 point counts for bulk building materials.
The report will express the percentage of different asbestos fibers detected based on 400 or 1000 point counts and the final residual weight of the sample. The reported results will include the percentage concentration of organic, inorganic acid soluble and insoluble components in the entire sample layer.
|CARB 435 - 400 Point Count||The sample must be ground using a grinder to a size of no more than 200 Taylor mesh (75 microns), and the method then counts 400 points with a detection limit of 0.25% to determine the amount of asbestos present.|
|CARB 435 - 1000 Point Count||The sample must first be crushed using a grinder to a size of no more than 200 Taylor mesh (75 microns), after which the asbestos content must be determined using a 1000 point count procedure with a 0.1% detection limit.|
|EPA Method 600/R - 93/116|
This analysis includes a visual estimation test for asbestos using EPA Method 600/R-93/116 on bulk building materials. Furthermore, samples with a high concentration of fine fibers below PLM resolution (0.3 m) cannot be analyzed using this approach.
According to its morphology, the procedure separates the sample material into various layers, after which it looks for the presence of various asbestos fibers in each layer.
Based on visual estimation, the report will indicate the percentage of various asbestos fibers found in each stratum.
