Asbestos Analysis

Our laboratory analyzes lung tissue samples for types and concentrations of asbestos fibers. Asbestos bodies are quantified by light microscopy whereas concentrations of coated and uncoated asbestos fibers are determined by means of scanning electron microscopy, with the results compared to a well-defined control population. We have analyzed more than 1300 cases for their asbestos content (details available in the 3rd Ed. of our textbook, Pathology of Asbestos-Associated Diseases).
