Paradigm has highly qualified analysts in multiple lab locations, with an array of dedicated Polarized Light Microscopes (PLM) and Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM). With our ELAP and NVLAP certifications we are prepared to address your requirements for any size project in any facility type. Our laboratories operate on multiple shifts and on weekends, to ensure your turnaround needs are met.
One of the unique features of our laboratory is our responsiveness to your project needs. We have extensive experience partnering with asbestos inspection and design professionals, and work closely with all parties to address project needs. Our analytical and project management staff are always accessible, ready to customize our work to your requirements. TEM and stop positive decisions can be handled automatically or interactively, as you prefer. Our reports are clear and comprehensive, providing sample location and description information, assisting in the Project Design process. We are familiar with a number of asbestos inspection (survey) formats, and can customize our output as needed. If you have a particularly challenging case, our expert analysts can help you solve it; vermiculite issues, altered materials, asbestos look alikes. Because our laboratories handle such a large number of samples, we are familiar with almost every possible material of potential concern.
