Bulk Asbestos Analysis Specialists

A reputable name in the asbestos industry, Scopes Asbestos Analysis is a UKAS accredited laboratory, which specialises exclusively in the area of bulk analysis. We pride ourselves in offering a superior facility which is committed to providing and delivering our services on time and in the professional manner our clients’ demand. We combine this proficient approach with the sustained objective of maintaining a unique relationship with all of our clients to ensure that all requirements are met.


Scopes are proud of the efficient service that we offer to all our clients. We maintain an extremely competitive rate regardless of how much work is supplied. Normal turnaround for analysis of bulk materials from the time samples are received at our laboratory is within 24 to 48 hours. This is exclusive of bank holidays and weekends and is dependent on the number of samples. However, when urgent analysis of samples is required, special arrangements can be negotiated for immediate turnaround, depending on sample amount and availability of staff. At Scopes, every sample is undertaken in accordance with ISO 17025 2017 and HSG 248 Government Guidelines. We are also participants in AIMS (Asbestos in materials Scheme) proficiency testing for Bulk Fibre Analysis. With regard to the presentation of results, we offer a range of high quality services to ensure that your results reach you wherever you are, be it via fax, email or post.
