microPHAZIR AS - Asbestos Screening

Identification of asbestos-containing materials is critical during renovation and demolition projects and the recycling of construction materials.  The Thermo Scientific microPHAZIR AS analyser can be used in the field and streamlines inspection without compromising accuracy.

Detecting asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in homes and commercial buildings prior to demolition or renovation is critical to prevent asbestos exposure. Currently,asbestos detection is limited to accredited lab based analysis such as polarized light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction. Lab-based test are costly and can become even more expensive if a quick turnaround is required.  The Thermo Scientific microPHAZIR AS handheld analyser is a powerful tool that enables in-field rapid screening and identification of all six types of regulated asbestos fibers. The 2.75 lb (1.25kg) handheld near infrared analyzer is completely self-contained and can perform accurate on-site analysis in seconds.

Key Benefits Include:

  1. Fast, accurate identification

Point-and-shoot operation returns results in seconds and features onboard results storage.

  1. Reduction of laboratory testing

Minimal training required, fully automated operation and automatic reference and calibration.

  1. Portable

Field-based testing can reduce the need and reliance on outsourced laboratory testing.

  1. Reduced sample preparation

Sampling preparation is reduced or eliminated as opposed to previous screening methods available destructive.
