Polarized Light Microscope

Our key instrument is the Polarized Light Microscope (PLM). The PLM is a powerful tool used extensively in asbestos detection and characterization. It leverages the principles of optical mineralogy to differentiate asbestos from non-asbestos fibers and to identify the specific type of asbestos present.

This specialized microscope uses polarized light which passes through a sample, enhancing specific properties of the asbestos fibers, and making them easier to identify. The technique is non-destructive, preserving the sample for further analysis if required.

The PLM in our lab is not just modern, but meticulously maintained. This ensures that we deliver reliable, high-quality results every time. The image above showcases our well-kept Polarized Light Microscope.
