FRS Geotech, Inc. is an environmental optical microscopy laboratory specializing in asbestos and fungal analysis. It is owned by three geologists with over 50 years of combined experience in the analysis of both bulk and air samples, and over 70 years of combined experience in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, mycology and general field geology. We analyze various types of samples for asbestos and mold identification using the following techniques:

--PLM (polarized light microscopy) analysis of asbestos samples.

--Point Count analysis (quantification) of asbestos bulk samples. 

--PCM (phase contrast microscopy) analysis of air filter samples.

--ID-160 (OSHA PLM method) for the analysis of air filter samples.

--Optical microscopy characterization of bulk mold samples, and

--Spore Trap analysis (quantification) of mold-air samples.

THE COMPANY

 

FRS Geotech, Inc., established in 1993, is a laboratory specializing

in asbestos and mold analyses.  It is owned and operated by two

Ph. D. geologists with over 25 years of combined experience in the

analysis of asbestos, and over 50 years of combined experience in

geology mineralogy and microscopy.

 

 

THE FRS LABORATORY

 

FRS Geotech, Inc. comprises a full service optical microscopy

laboratory offering the following analytical services:

 

        PLM (polarized light microscopy) analysis of bulk samples. 

Identification and estimated amount of asbestos minerals present.

AN EMPHASIS

ON

SERVICE AND QUALITY

 

We are a service-oriented company.  It is our goal to provide high

caliber analytical work in a timely fashion.

We understand the value of our client's time.  We strive to complete

our analyses on the due date.  Normally the final report and invoice

are printed and mailed out the same day that the analysis is performed.

Our QA/QC program was developed through years of experience

in the industry.  It is second to none.  Our clients are more than

welcome to visit the lab to review the QA/QC program and records

at any time.  A complete Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) is available

on request.

As questions regarding asbestos or mold analyses may arise long

after an analysis has been done, our data files are kept in perpetuity. 

Normally, FRS archives the samples themselves for one year,

but samples will be returned to a client or held longer upon request.
