Our fiber counters are recognized by IRSST and can quickly and efficiently analyze the total amount of fiber in the air. If the situation requires it, we can specifically identify asbestos fibers in samples.

Our experience and thoroughness mean we can support and advise you all throughout the asbestos removal process.

Since a material likely to contain asbestos is considered contaminated until proven otherwise, our team can support you with the analysis and decontamination process.

Analyses are conducted for all types of materials (insulation, limpet spraying, vinyl floor tiles, joint compounds, vermiculite, etc.) in a certified laboratory in accordance with recognized methods.

  • ELAP 198-1 method – Identification of asbestos fibres in non-friable materials using a transmission electron microscopy (TEM)
  • IRSST-244 method – Characterization of fibres in dust or in bulk materials

The total (PNOC), respirable and inhalable dust and PM10 in the air can have an impact on the well-being of building occupants and workers. This is why analysis is so important.

We can conduct gravimetric analysis to determine the concentration of dust in samples. Additionally, our standardized and recognized methods guarantee reliable and precise results.
