Asbestos analyses on dust collection filters

Eurofins Eichrom Laboratories perform asbestos measurements on dust collection filters put in place to monitor both conventional worksites and worksites exposed to radioactivity (VLA/LA). Eurofins Eichrom applies its protocols at its facilities in Bruz (northwestern France); these protocols involve the use of Transmission Electron Microscopes equipped with energy dispersive x-ray analyzers to perform asbestos fiber counts in accordance with the regulations.
