Handheld Asbestos Analyser
Prevent asbestos exposure on site and identify asbestos substitution in products during incoming inspection with the Thermo Scientific™ microPHAZIR™ AS Asbestos Analyser.
The microPHAZIR AS analyser is a powerful tool that enables in-field, rapid screening and identification of all six types of regulated asbestos fibers—chrysotile, crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite, actinolite and amosite—within seconds.
Designed for expert and non-technical users alike, the microPHAZIR AS Asbestos Analyser is completely self-contained and utilises the power of near-infrared spectroscopy to perform accurate on-site analysis in seconds.
Identification of asbestos-containing materials is critical during renovation and demolition projects and the recycling of construction materials. The 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 polarised light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction. Lab-based tests are costly and can become even more expensive if a quick turnaround is required.
Fast, accurate identification
Point-and-shoot operation provides results in seconds and features onboard results storage.
Reduction of laboratory testing
Field-based testing can reduce the need and cost associated with outsourced laboratory testing.
Simple and easy to use
Minimal training required, fully automated operation and automatic reference and calibration.
Reduced sample preparation
Sampling preparation is reduced or eliminated compared to previous screening methods available.
