This survey is 100% anonymous and will not be used, in anyway, to evaluate participants.

The survey was created in an effort to understand how our participants treat IHPAT Asbestos samples. The survey covers sample preparation, microscope filter, test slide type and usage, and sample characteristics.
Tell us about your asbestos prep and analysis.
