Asbestos analysis

People working in the construction industry are at high risk of being exposed to asbestos dust. It is important to know that asbestos is a dangerous substance that can cause serious diseases. If a material contains asbestos, it is usually necessary to take an asbestos test in order to obtain a safe response.

Falck has over 50 years of analytical experience in asbestos and has permission from the Swedish Work Environment Authority to handle and perform asbestos analysis/asbestos samples. We offer asbestos analysis for all types of workplaces and businesses.

How the asbestos test works

Depending on the material to be tested, the sample is taken as follows:

  • Tiles, plastic carpet, wet room wallpaper and other similar materials: about 5 x 5 cm. Make sure that the sealing and grout, glue or similar are included.
  • Pipe insulation and other powdery: 1 to 2 tablespoons.
  • Window putty, sealing in ventilation ducts etcetera: about 5 to 10 cm.

Submit the sample

Place each sample in a separate and sealable plastic bag. The plastic bags are placed in a padded envelope and then you fill out the order form below.

The asbestos samples, together with the signed order form, are sent to AB Falck, The Laboratory; Box 1094, 164 25 Kista. Large packages are sent to the visiting address: Kistagången 16/Isafjordsgatan 22, 164 40 Kista.
