Sample identification.

 In order to confirm whether or not a material contains asbestos and to identify what fibre types are present analysis of the material through the use of Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM) is required.

Leftfield Environmental laboratories hold UKAS accreditation for in-house asbestos testing which enables us to ensure the rapid and accurate analysis samples taken during surveys by our own surveyors and of third party samples sent for analysis.
