Asbestos Tests

non toxic

SEM asbestos testing for air, dust and both standard & special materials

Lab analysis for private and commercial customers

  • Asbestos tests for all materials and substances
  • Accredited laboratory ISO 17025
  • Express lab analysis - results after just 3-7 working days incl. SEM photos
If you suspect that the air in your room, the dust or any of your building materials may contain asbestos, you should immediately test for asbestos. If asbestos is found, business owners may even be liable to prosecution and others may expose themselves to enormous health risks. 

Our professional and easy-to-understand asbestos laboratory tests are tailored to your needs and are an ideal solution for both commercial and private customers. Depending on where you want the focus of your analysis to lie, you can choose between the Asbestos Indoor Air Test, which analyses a standard dust sample, and the Asbestos Material Tests which analyses all your materials using three different analytical methods (microscope magnification, ashing, acid treatment) to detection limit of 0.001%. Quickly gain clarity and assurance.

Identify asbestos with our asbestos tests for indoor 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 in insulation materials in buildings constructed before the ban was enforced. 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 you are at risk, both before and after building work.

When should you test for asbestos?

Asbestos-containing materials can turn DIY into a hazard. Private individuals should therefore test for asbestos fibres before or directly after carrying out renovation work on old houses. It is even more important for tradespeople and business owners to play it safe. If renovation work is undertaken on asbestos-containing building materials without the right protection, there may be legal consequences. 

The Asbestos Test for dust samples

Our Indoor Air Test provides a quick overview and fast assurance. Simply take a dust sample with a piece of tape, following the detailled instructions provided. The particles stuck to the tape will then be examined for asbestos fibres in a laboratory, in compliance with ISO 17025.

The Asbestos Test for simple materials

Our Asbestos Material test allows you to test a wide range of materials for asbestos fibres and man made mineral fibres. This test is ideal for both private and commercial use. You don't need any specialist knowledge when taking the sample. Simply send us your sample and our experts at the laboratory will deliver fast results in compliance with ISO 17025. Our accredited laboratory will test your sample to a detection limit of 0.001% in compliance with ISO 17025.

The Asbestos Test for special materials

The Asbestos Test for special materials is ideal for materials like plaster, mortar, filler and cement screed. Man-made mineral fibres are tested for as well as asbestos fibres. Our accredited laboratory test your sample to a detection level of 0.001% in accordance with ISO 17025. 

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

Different countries have different regulations for asbestos analysis. Our laboratories in Germany 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 dispatched 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.
