LEA offers full, in-house analytical services for aerosol fibres (such as for example during Asbestos abatement, bulk Asbestos materials, Lead based paint (LBP), pressure treated wood preservatives and Elemental analysis by X-ray Fluorescence (XRF), and surficial fungal spore and spores in air analysis.

We also offer mobile Asbestos & fungal spore laboratory services, and on site or in-situ XRF testing for LBP, Lead swabs, Lead in air (filter analysis), Arsenic, Copper and heavy metals.

In cases where mould contamination is suspected, we employ infra-red thermal and fibre-optic imaging, and in-wall spore sampling to identify and confirm suspect areas.

Staff & facilities in Nanaimo and Courtenay, same day sample turn-around, and CALA and AIHA quality assurance accreditation are three good reasons to have us meet your analytical needs.
