Please do not send us unnecessarily large samples of asbestos.

SMALL SAMPLE QUANTITIES!

For the analysis of samples for asbestos only very small quantities of representative material are necessary:

  • a sample of 1 x 1 cm size for material samples
  • the content of a thimble in dust samples

are more than sufficient.

 

Please do not send us unnecessarily large samples!

 

To take a dust sample, press an approx. 10 cm long tape strip into the dust to be tested and then glue the strip onto a smooth surface (e.g. a transparent cover). Alternatively, fold the strip in the middle so that the adhesive surfaces adhere to each other.

 

Analysis of material samples for asbestos and/or artificial mineral fibres (€ 62/sample plus VAT)

  • For testing we need a small but representative piece, about the size of a coin. You can take the sample yourself but please avoid dust formation by dampening the relevant area of the sample with water.
  • Place the sample(s) into a sample bag with clip closure, a freezer bag or a film can and dispatch it in a Jiffy bag or another kind of protective bag.
  • Include an informal letter with your address and an additional note “analysis for asbestos”. 
  • We will be glad to previously send a PDF file of the documents. In this case, please state your mailing address. 

Analysis of dust samples for asbestos and/or man-made mineral fibres (€ 85/ sample plus VAT)

  • If you take a sample of a larger quantity of dust please avoid stirring it up. Place the sample into an air-proof sample bag with clip closure, a freezer bag or a film can and dispatch it in a Jiffy bag or another kind of protective bag.
  • To collect a dust sample, press a 10 cm long strip of sticky tape into the dust and then glue the strip onto a smooth surface (for example a transparent folder). Alternatively, fold the strip in the middle so that the adhesive surfaces stick to each other.
avoid asbestos dust

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!

Please make sure that dust is not generated unnecessarily during sampling. Avoid sawing, drilling and grinding in any case! If necessary, spray the area with water to bind fibres and absorb any dust with a wet paper towel.

For floor slabs and tiles, please bear in mind that the slab and adhesive each represent a separate analysis.

Weathering of asbestos cement: Do old asbestos roofs release fibers?

The ban on asbestos has been in effect in Germany for almost 30 years. This also means that common asbestos products such as fiber cement have been exposed to weathering since that time, especially on the exterior. What this means for the material and the eventual release of fibers has now been explored by a Norwegian research team [Ervik et al. 2021]. ... read more
