Using EPA Certified Method for accurate asbestos identification.
Microscopy Technology is the usage of a low-powered magnifying microscope to identify asbestos fibers in materials. A polarized light microscope with illumination assists in further identification. This microscope then uses either dispersion staining or phase contrast objectives to enable the refractive indices of the asbestos fibers to be identified. Asbestos is ideally suited for analysis by light microscopy technology because it has optical properties that are not found in other minerals. So the existence of those properties is confirmation of asbestos existence.
