Bulk Sample Analysis


There are often occurrences when sampling of a specific item only is required and a survey may not always be necessary.

One or more samples can be extracted from a suspect material to confirm whether or not asbestos is present.

The only sure way of identifying the presence or otherwise of asbestos is to have all samples of suspect material properly analysed by a laboratory formally accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), in accordance with HSG 248 Guidance, a Bulk Sample Report will be issued on completion of analysis.

UKAS accreditation against the International ISO/IEC 17025 standard is vital because it confirms whether or not a laboratory has the right people, facilities, equipment, technical expertise and management systems in place so that you can trust its report to be complete, accurate and dependable.
