Asbestos Tests for air, dust & materials

Lab analysis for private and commercial customers

  • Asbestos tests for all materials and substances, incl. Artex
  • Accredited laboratory ISO 17025
  • Laboratory analysis - results after 3-7 working days incl. SEM photos
If you suspect that the air in your home / the dust or building materials contain asbestos, you should carry out an asbestos analysis immediately. In cases of asbestos contamination, tradespeople may be liable to prosecution and others can expose themselves to enormous health risks. 

Our professional and easy-to-understand asbestos laboratory test kits are tailored to your needs and are an optimal solution for both commercial and private users. Depending on where you want the focus of your analysis to lie, you can choose between the Asbestos Indoor Air Test which analyses a normal dust sample and the Asbestos Material Tests which analyse materials such as artex using three methods (microscope magnification, ashing, acid treatment) to detection limit of 0.001%. Gain clarity and assurance in no time at all.

Identify asbestos with our asbestos tests for air and materials

Asbestos has been proven to be harmful to the health (asbestosis), and for this reason, its manufacture and use have been banned since the end of the 1990s. However, asbestos was widely used for insulation and in materials such as Artex in buildings which were constructed before this ban. Asbestos is often found in fibre cement cladding, as well as roof tiles, corrugated sheets and flooring. Sprayed asbestos and asbestos cement are also commonly used around the house. But how can you identify asbestos? Even for professionals, the harmful substance is hard to identify by sight alone. An asbestos laboratory analysis quickly and comprehensively lets you know if your renovation work could be dangerous.

When should you test for asbestos?

Asbestos-containing materials can turn DIY into a hazard. Private consumers should therefore test for asbestos fibres before carring out renovation work on the house. It is even more important for tradespeople to protect themselves with an asbestos test. If renovation work is undertaken on asbestos-containing building materials, there may be legal consequences. 

The Asbestos Indoor Air Test for dust samples

Our Asbestos Air Test gives you a quick overview and fast assurance. Simply take a dust sample with a piece of tape, which can be done using the detailled instructions included. The particles which stick to the tape will then be examined for asbestos fibres in a laboratory.

The Asbestos Material Test for Standard Materials

You can test all kinds of materials for asbestos using our Asbestos Material Test. This test is ideal for both private and commercial use. You don't need any specialist knowledge when selecting the material - simply send us your sample and our experts will determine what kind of analysis the required detection limit delivers. Our expert laboratory analyses your sample using the latest SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) technology. Regardless of the asbestos sample you send in, the lab will test it to a detection limit of between 1% and 0.1%.

The Asbestos Material Test for Special Materials.

The Asbestos Test for Special Materials analyses your samples for man-made mineral fibres such as slag wool, basalt wool, stone wool and glass wool, as well as for asbestos-containing fibres in materials like Artex, to a detection limit of as low as 0.001%,

Proficient analysis of your sample using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)

Different countries have different regulations for asbestos analysis. Our laboratories use Scanning Electron Microscopy and are carried out in accredited testing laboratories. 

This is how your IVARIO Asbestos Analysis works:

Simply order the test kit of your choice online and it will be sent to you within 24 hours. The test kit makes it easy to take a sample of the material you would like to have examined yourself - no specialist knowledge is required. Then, you send back the pre-paid return kit free of charge to an accredited testing laboratory, where your sample will be analysed using the most reliable scientific methods. After just a few days you can view your test report online. If requested, it can be sent to you by post too.
