Asbestos Sampling and Bulk Analysis

It’s not always necessary to complete a full survey to identify an asbestos containing material, but it is only through laboratory analysis that the presence and type of asbestos can be truly confirmed.

We can offer a sampling service to identify asbestos within client supplied samples or we can come to you to safely collect samples and return them for analysis.

Our sampling technicians are fully trained, competent and equipped to ensure that samples are taken in a safe and controlled manner, minimising the risk of inadvertent fibre release. Sample points will be safely encapsulated on completion and marked with a location sticker where appropriate.

Our booking staff will ask a few simple questions about the type and location of material to be sampled and we’ll attend at the earliest convenient time to suit you. We also offer an out of hours emergency attendance service when suspect material has been damaged.

Sample analysis is usually undertaken using polarised light microscopy by specially trained analysts. Legally sample analysis for asbestos must only be undertaken by a laboratory UKAS accredited to ISO 17025 and to ensure a wide coverage and availability of analysts Allium have pre-qualified a selection of laboratories across the UK.

Sample results can be supplied as a simple bulk analysis report or a more detailed sampling report incorporating photographs and annotated plans depending on your requirements.
