We offer a full range of analytical services from our UKAS accredited laboratories
If you are planning to carry out any work which may disturb asbestos containing materials, you must either get expert help to test whether or not asbestos is present, or take full safety precautions assuming that it is present. Both management surveys and refurbishment and demolition surveys require samples to be taken.
Our UKAS accredited laboratory testing service deals with these samples. Qualified and experienced analysts carry out the bulk sampling and analysis of suspect material in accordance with HSE Guidance Note HSG248: The Analysts’ Guide and industry best practice.
You can choose to receive results via email, or use our online asbestos database to keep track of all your bulk analysis in one place.
