What is an Asbestos Testing Laboratory?

Asbestos Testing Laboratory by EMSL Analytical

An asbestos testing laboratory is a facility that specializes in analyzing asbestos materials to ensure asbestos-containing material is safe and compliant with various city, state and other industry standards.

Aside from the liability issue, one of the biggest reasons for asbestos testing lies in public safety. Proper asbestos testing will allow you to avoid inhaling dangerous particles such as asbestos fibers – which can cause harmful diseases, including mesothelioma cancer, asbestosis and other illnesses linked to asbestos exposure.

If an individual or business has old buildings or uses certain products that may contain this toxic substance, it’s critical they employ a qualified lab for a thorough examination of any exposed areas before doing anything else. This includes removing any remaining materials from floors or ceilings during renovation projects, replacing asbestos-containing tiles on bathroom or kitchen floors and using asbestos-free supplies when preparing for any possible future projects.

Our asbestos testing laboratories provide asbestos testing services to ensure the safety of everyone who enters the facility, prevent asbestos dust from contaminating the air outside and avoid legal issues with members of the public or customers if asbestos is found in certain areas. We also play a huge role in asbestos abatement and asbestos removal efforts and asbestos training for workers who work with asbestos on a regular basis.

Asbestos testing techniques can vary depending on the material, but most asbestos testing laboratories employ swab or air-based analysis to determine if materials contain asbestos particles. If the lab determines that asbestos is present, asbestos abatement professionals are brought in to remove the asbestos. Air quality testing can also be conducted at these facilities, which is critical because asbestos fibers may not even be detectable by the human eye.

Asbestos testing laboratories are also sometimes known as asbestos inspections or asbestos analysis centers. These facilities perform analysis on building materials, soil samples and many other asbestos-related products to ensure they are asbestos-free.

Asbestos—a material once popular in construction, paper products, plastics, and more—now takes the lives of thousands of Americans every year due to related diseases. Exposure often occurs indoors, where it might be unknowingly released from these everyday materials. The long-term health effects, particularly on the lungs, are a significant cause for concern. Chronic inhalation exposure can lead to severe respiratory diseases, such as asbestosis, characterized by shortness of breath and coughing.

Moreover, asbestos exposure can increase the risk of cancer. Inhalation can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma, and it is also potentially linked to gastrointestinal cancers.

The EPA identifies asbestos as Group A, a known human carcinogen. Its presence can only be confirmed with a special type of microscope, highlighting the importance of professional testing. EMSL’s accredited asbestos testing labs provide definitive and trustworthy analysis. Trust us to support your safety.
