Bulk sampling is an essential step in testing for asbestos in the built environment. Depending on local codes, it may be necessary to test for asbestos before performing renovations or completing a demolition — especially when working in an older building. Failure to do so using approved methods can lead to fines and liability issues, in addition to potential long-term health problems for the building's occupants.
Zefon International carries affordable bulk asbestos sampling kits that make it easy to collect a viable sample while minimizing the risk of exposure. Explore our products online or contact our office for assistance.
Why Is Bulk Sampling Necessary?
Asbestos was once a widespread building material that was valued for its resistance to fire, chemical corrosion, and electricity. A growing awareness of the negative health effects of exposure to airborne asbestos particles led to its phasing out in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Despite this, many buildings still contain asbestos, which is why testing is necessary before starting a construction project on an older property.
Bulk sampling is the first step in identifying and quantifying the presence of asbestos in a building. Once a bulk sample is collected, an approved lab will analyze it using a combination of several techniques, including stereomicroscopy and polarized light microscopy. Asbestos bulk sampling kits ensure the accuracy of these results and protect the health of workers on the ground.
Our inventory of bulk asbestos sampling products includes plungers, scrapers, cutter sleeves, and other tools. One of our most popular products is an economical starter kit consisting of:
