Reduce the risk of asbestos exposure with instant, on-the-spot screening

Identification and abatement of asbestos is a growing concern for environmental agencies, manufacturers and local communities around the globe. Inspectors need to quickly assess, qualify and report the presence of asbestos at demolition and renovation sites, as well as in manufactured goods, to reduce the risk of human exposure. Typical lab analysis can add time and expense to the identification process. The Thermo Scientific™ microPHAZIR™ AS Analyzer uses the power of near-infrared spectroscopy to accurately—and instantly—identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) on-site, where it matters most.
