What is PCM Asbestos Analysis?
Phase Contrast Microscopy is an optical-microscopy technique that can be to test air samples for the presence of asbestos fibers. A portable microscope, air samples, and proper training are the three main components for PCM Analysis. When asbestos fibers are airborne is when they pose the greatest threat to human health.
When You Might Need PCM Asbestos Analysis
It is required to test for asbestos fibers during the Air Monitoring and Final Clearance stages of an asbestos abatement project. PCM Analysis makes certain that there is not asbestos present in the air, and the space is safe for re-occupancy and reuse. Any asbestos fibers that may remain present pose a human health risk and a liability for the property owner.
