Phase Contrast Microscopy
One means of testing the airborne fiber levels before, during, and subsequent to asbestos abatement activities is through the use of Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM) analysis.
These samples are taken before, during, and after asbestos abatement activities to document asbestos fiber concentrations as background levels, inside-the-work-area levels, and outside-the-work-area levels. This information can be used to establish airborne fiber concentrations, monitor the effectiveness of the asbestos abatement operations, and provide assurance that airborne fibers are not exiting the containment barriers.
Dc Environmental, Inc. provides Phase Contrast Microscopy Analysis and often provides turnaround time within 24 hours. This gives building owners assurance that their project is being conducted safely and in the best interests of their assets.
