Asbestos Laboratory Test (not a shipping kit)


Please note that this is not a kit, and we do not provide sampling supplies. You are placing an order for a prepaid laboratory test of construction material (except vermiculite) for asbestos. You need to send your samples to our laboratory in London, Ontario, Canada. We use the Polarized Light Microscopy technique as described in the method EPA 600/R-93/116. Asbestos concentration is reported with a sensitivity of 0.5% by weight. Your order includes laboratory analysis and a formal report that will be sent to you by email. To place your order, please select a number of samples and the turnaround time.

Please print out your receipt, and ship it with the samples. Please make sure you check the shipping instructions below.



It is easy to check your house for asbestos, and it will definitely make your future renovation project much safer.  Simply select a number of samples that you want to test, and place your order.

If you want to learn more about asbestos law, materials that often contain asbestos, our rush service, shipping recommendations, or find out how many samples should you collect to make your test legally compliant, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. If you have any questions, please email us at your convenience

Important: if you need to test Vermiculite Attic insulation, please place your order via “Vermiculite Test” page.

Take a small piece of material that you want to test for Asbestos and place it in a Ziploc bag. You need only about 5-20 g of material, this is about the size of a teaspoon. It does not have to be exact amount, and it can be one piece or crumbs. It is all good. Place the sample into the bag, close it, and label the bag with a permanent marker: “Ceiling paint from kids’ bedroom”, or “Yellow flooring from kitchen”. If you want to test more than one sample, each sample should be placed in a separate bag. Please take as many samples as you need, label each bag. Count number of samples, and select corresponding number of tests.

Once the package with your samples is ready, please:

  1. Print  or wright down for us your order number, and place it into a box/envelope with your samples
  2. Send or deliver the samples and the paperwork to our laboratory

When you take a sample, presume the worst and protect yourself from asbestos. Asbestos is the most toxic when you inhale it. To be safe and “just in case”, you should wear N100 or P100 dust mask.
