Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) for asbestos in bulk samples:

EPA/600/R-93/116 Method.

Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM ) analysis is performed to identify, classify and quantify Asbestos fiber concentration in bulk building materials, domestic & Industrial insulations, sprayed & non-sprayed plasters, coatings, ceiling & flooring materials, Floor tiles, caulks and adhesives.

Point Count:

This method is used to quantify Asbestos fibers in bulk materials at a lower detection limit using PLM microscope. Point Count provides detection limit of 0.25%.

Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM):

NIOSH 7400 Method.

PCM analysis is performed to measure fiber concentrations in Clearance, Personal and Ambient air samples during and after abatement.
