PJL Laboratories

Bulk Analysis Laboratory

PJL has a full in-house bulk sample laboratory. We utilise Stereo Microscopy to identify and isolate fibres of suspected Asbestos within bulk samples, to determine the type of Asbestos in any given sample, a Polarised Light Microscope is used to perform the following tests:

  • Sign of Elongation
  • Birefringence
  • Pleochroism
  • Extinction
  • Dispersion Staining

This analysis is then transferred onto our easy to read certificate, which can be sent by either email as a PDF File, or we can supply a printed certificate that can be posted wherever it is needed.
