Asbestos Testing by Microscopy

Kimberly at the microscope

Kimberly Saw joined Econotech in 2015 with extensive asbestos testing experience.

For fast, reliable asbestos testing of flooring, wiring and insulation in walls and attics or around pipes, maintenance departments trust Econotech. Our experienced technicians have received training in asbestos analysis from the Workers Compensation Board and/or the McCrone Research Institute, and we participate in quarterly proficiency testing administered through AIHA (American Industrial Hygiene Association).

We offer two asbestos-related tests:

  • Identification of Asbestos in Bulk Samples ("Asbestos (bulk) by PLM" - NIOSH 9002)
  • Fibers in Air ("Asbestos and other fibres by PCM" - NIOSH 7400)

WorkSafeBC has inspected our lab to ensure that our asbestos handling and testing procedures meet provincial regulations.
