Analysis for asbestos in bulk samples is a routine test which is carried out in the U.K.A.S. accredited in-house laboratory (reference: 2432).
Our P401 qualified analysts use an internationally recognised and UKAS accredited method to determine which, if any, of the six asbestos types are present. Asbestos can be detected in concentrations of 1 part per million in most bulk samples. The test is qualitative, which means that we are unable to give an estimate of the amount of asbestos in the sample.
All of our analysts are highly trained, friendly and professional.
Samples can be posted, delivered in person to our laboratory, or collected by our surveyors. We welcome samples from anyone; private or commercial so long as they are sealed and double bagged in clear sample bags.
The turnaround time for sample analysis is guaranteed in 24 hours from sample receipt.

All samples are analysed in our in house U.K.A.S accredited laboratory located on the Isle of Wight. We are the only specialist laboratory situated here. In accordance with requirements and our in house Quality Control system, we participate fully in quality control schemes to ensure we are continuing to give our clients the best possible service.
Sample Analysis – AIMS
AIMS is a proficiency testing scheme which ensures laboratories are competent to perform analysis of bulk samples. There are three rounds every year, with four samples each. Competency is judged using a points system where the lower the score the better. “Satisfactory performance” is awarded to laboratories achieving a score of 39 or less over three rounds.
