Asbestos Analytical Services

McCabe Environmental specializes in providing air sample analysis via phase contrast microscopy (PCM). The Laboratory Director has over 26 years experience in asbestos analysis and is considered one of the most experienced individuals in the asbestos analytical field today.

Our laboratory provides PCM analysis 24 hours per day, 7 days per week which allows our clients the flexibility for performing asbestos services within a facility at lowest building occupancy. Our analysts are all successful participants in the Asbestos Analysts Registry (AAR) and the Proficiency Analytical Testing (PAT) Program which are both administered by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA). Our in-house laboratory is capable of performing PCM analysis; if required, we sub-contract TEM analysis for further fiber identification and confirmation.

We are presently pursuing accreditation for providing polarized light microscopy (PLM) for bulk sample analysis and will be updating that information in the near future. We are conveniently located just outside New York City which gives us the ability to serve our New York clients as well as our New Jersey clients in a timely and effective manner.

Accreditations and program participation include:

  • New York State Department of Health Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP)
  • American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Proficiency Analytical Testing (PAT) Program (participant)
  • American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Asbestos Analysts Registry (AAR) Program (participant)
