Hill Labs offers the following asbestos analyses:

  • Asbestos Identification in Bulk Materials – Analyses of suspected asbestos containing materials, typically building materials or demolition debris.
  • Asbestos Fibre Counting – IANZ Accredited - Hill Labs offers this service for air monitoring associated with asbestos abatement and air quality studies.
  • Asbestos Identification in Soils – We meet the New Zealand Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Asbestos in Soil (BRANZ Guidelines) and the implementation of laboratory methods described under AS 4964 2004. To meet these guidelines, a minimum of 500 ml of soil must be submitted and the entire sample prepared for analysis. This provides semi-quantitative asbestos in soil result. An analysis method for the presence/absence of asbestos in soil is also available.
