H/B Analytical Division

We concentrate on the identification of bulk Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) via Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) and are certified in NIOSH 582 for the Sampling and Evaluation of Airborne Asbestos Dust.

Bulk samples are analyzed by Polarized Light Microscopy coupled with dispersion staining in general accordance with EPA 600/M4-82-020 and EPA 600/R-93/116 (July 1993).

Air samples are analyzed utilizing Phase Contract Microscopy (PCM) in general accordance with the NIOSH 7400 Method.
Our goal is to ensure that your experience with us is flawless. Chain of Custody and all paperwork are filled out properly, samples are read according to protocol and you receive your samples on time if not earlier.

We are on call 24/7 for emergency analytical asbestos needs.
