Pricelists

Asbestos analysis // Scanning electron micoscopy, SEM // X-ray microanalysis 


Bulk materials, dust samples

Order-No. Prices per sample in Euro (€) - net / gross (incl. VAT)
110

Analysis of bulk materials for asbestos, man-made mineral fibres 
incl. test report, energy-dispersive, qualitative element analysis and SEM image according to guideline VDI 3866, Part 5:2017-06

single sample € 62 / € 73.78 
delivery of 5-9 samples en bloc (per sample) € 59 € / € 70,21 
delivery of 10 or more samples en bloc (per sample) € 57 € / € 67,83 

Please note:

The ammendment of guideline VDI 3866, part 5, in draft state since 07/2015, recommends extended techniques for the preparation and analysis for several groups of building materials. These are ashing, milling or grinding, for example of floor pavements and putties.

Materials pretreated in such a way have to be analyzed as dispersed specimens with heightened analytical expense, similar to the analysis of dust samples (Order-No.: 111).

Types of analyses with even more extended preparation, for example of plasters, trowelled materials and paints by acid treatment, suspension and filtration: please refrer to order numbers 122-124
