Asbestos testing in sydney

It is necessary to test for asbestos as soon as its presence is suspected. Airsafe is NATA certified for asbestos sample identification. We analyze asbestos samples using the following methods:

Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM)
Dispersion staining (DS) techniques

The result: a conclusive answer, backed by Airsafe’s unparalleled credentials and experience.

Airsafe’s asbestos testing lab
To get accurate results, asbestos testing must be performed in a laboratory with the appropriate equipment. At Airsafe, we guarantee that the job has been done right; we do not involve third parties to perform asbestos testing. Instead, we have our own laboratory with highly trained staff who analyze samples thoroughly, using a rigorous process and advanced testing methods, such as:

1. Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM)
Polarised Light Microscopy has a special microscope that produces polarised light conditions in which makes the asbestos fibres visible.

Regular light microscopes require unpolarised, white light. This type of light can be seen with naked eye, and its waves vibrate in random directions. Waves from Polarised light vibrate only in one direction, and human beings can’t see it normally. Under polarised light asbestos fibres behave in a certain way, via which a trained technician can identify asbestos, rather than another material that might look similar to the naked eye.

2. Dispersion Staining (DS)
Dispersion staining is essentially an analytical method that uses the differences in the refractive index dispersion curve of an unknown material, compared to a standard material with a known dispersion curve, to distinguish or identify that unknown material.

For asbestos testing, both dispersion staining and polarized light microscopy are used to confirm asbestos fibers’ presence and identify the specific type of asbestos in a sample.
