In urgent cases, a phone call is all it takes to obtain an express analysis from our asbestos laboratories. If required, we can provide support with a competent employee according to TRGS 519 No. 2.7. Appendix 3.


Overview of our analyses

Asbestos incl. carcinogenicity index

Asbestos and artificial mineral fibres

Our central environmental laboratory in Bruckberg has its own fibre lab, where analyses are performed on samples of material, raw material, dust, surfaces and ambient air for asbestos and types of asbestos, as well as the bonded form. In samples of material, artificial mineral fibres and the carcinogenicity index can also be determined. Tests are conducted using a high-tech scanning electron microscope. The video print and EDXA spectrum can be delivered along with the results, upon request. With advance warning, express analysis will be performed without a surcharge. Our central environmental laboratory in Deventer uses light microscopes to analyse samples of soil/building materials and sludge for asbestos.


Timber as a building pollutant

AGROLAB Labor GmbH in Bruckberg analyses samples of surface wood shavings, sawdust and wood cores for the standard pollutants, such as PCP or Lindan.

Sealants - carpet adhesives - solid paint residues

Sealants/carpet adhesives / /solid paint residues

Grouts and sealants, as building pollutants, are primarily tested for polychlorinated biphenyls. A special sample preparation is necessary for this purpose, which can of course be arranged by AGROLAB.

Carpet adhesives are analysed for, amongst others, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and solvents.


Concerning analysis of solid paint residues and coatings for metal (e.g. lead), please check with the laboratory on the minimum sample quantity required.


Ceramic waste

Ceramic waste can pollute demolition material

Material from demolished buildings often contains tiles that have to be analysed for metals such as cadmium, as well as for asbestos.

Such analysis is a routine procedure at AGROLAB - don't hesitate to ask!



Keeping an eye on time and money

Whether asbestos in the gym or paint residues in the nursery: building pollutants are a risk, in terms of both health and costs. Rapid and reliable results, as guaranteed by the AGROLAB GROUP, are indispensable. For time is money, and at worst the building work will come to a standstill.
