Bulk Sample Analysis
To carry out analysis of bulk sample for the presence of asbestos fibre, air sampling, and microscope counting of asbestos fibres in air in the UK, you must be accredited to ISO 17025 by the accreditation body UKAS. ASKAMS laboratories hold UKAS accreditation.
ASKAMS participate in the AIMS (Asbestos In Materials Scheme) run by the Health and Safety Laboratory.
All our samples are analysed at our own, purpose built UKAS accredited laboratory. The AIMS scheme ensures that all of the UKAS accredited laboratories that take part are audited regularly in analysing materials thought to contain asbestos.
Our team of bulk analysts can turn samples around in 24hrs, depending on the urgency of the results. The results of this analysis can be either emailed to you or you can use our free online management system, ASK, to keep all of your bulk analysis in one place.
All bulk analysis works are carried out in accordance with HSG248 “Asbestos: The analysts guide for sampling analysis and clearance procedures”
