Asbestos Air Testing
Asbestos air testing is an activity where a known volume of air is drawn through a filter over a measured period of time. During this time, airborne particles are collected on the filter which is then prepared for examination under a microscope.
A representative percentage of the filter is examined using phase-contrast microscopy to count all fibres seen. Only fibres which meet the set size criteria are counted over the specified number of areas.
From this, we can calculate the overall fibre concentration, shown as fibres per cubic centimetre of air (f/cm3).
