A technique to prepare asbestos air samples for light and electron microscopy.
  1. T W Pang,

    The direct transfer technique used in preparing waterborne asbestos for analysis by transmission electron microscopy is also suitable for preparing airborne asbestos collected on polycarbonate filters for light microscopy, scanning, and transmission electron microscopy. The same area and even the same fibre may be examined by the three microscopic methods and individual fibres identified by optical and electron-optical techniques and by x-ray microanalysis.
