In-House Laboratory For Fast Results

AES provides sample analysis from our own in-house UKAS accredited laboratory in Norfolk. This guarantees our customers are delivered a quick turnaround in sample results as we don’t have to wait to pass results from elsewhere. This also ensures our laboratory operates to our own stringent standards allowing us to analyse our customers samples and supply their results in true confidence. Also, with less overheads to manage from sub-contracting sample analysis to an outside company, we can pass this saving on to our customers, therefore offering extremely competitive rates.   

We can attend site in order to take samples for you or we can analyse samples sent directly to us. Our fully staffed laboratory can accommodate job needs ranging from one exploratory sample to multiple sample batches and larger jobs where a full survey is required.

Laboratory Analysis Of Asbestos Samples

The purpose of bulk analysis is to determine the type of asbestos that may be present in any suspect building materials as is in compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Our BOHS P401 qualified laboratory assistants carry out thorough analysis under controlled laboratory conditions and according to the guidelines set out in HSG 248 Asbestos: The Analyst Guide. Samples are analysed within a HEPA filtered cabinet under a stereomicroscope where suspect fibres will be identified. These fibres are then mounted in their corresponding RI liquids and viewed under a polarised light microscope to determine their asbestos type. Should there be no asbestos fibres found, a thorough process of elimination is followed to ensure accuracy of results.

Once analysis has been carried out you are supplied electronically with a Bulk Certificate PDF. Our consultants will then be able to provide you with professional recommendations regarding the management of any asbestos materials identified.

Benefits Of In-House Asbestos Laboratory Services

When using AES and our impartial in-house laboratory, we can guarantee to our customers that our staff are fully compliant in their ability to identify all six regulated types of asbestos using the qualitative method set out in the HSG 248 Asbestos: The Analyst Guide and according to their BOHS P401 qualifications. We partake in AIMS testing procedures and carry out our own internal quality checks regularly to ensure competency and maintain an above satisfactory level of performance. These rigorous procedures are reflected in the service given to our customers.
