L. MEASUREMENT OF FIBERS CONTENTS: PAGE

Several techniques were used for asbestos measurement up until the late 1960s [8]. Earlier than this, it was not widely recognized that the fibrous nature of asbestos was intimately related to its toxicity, so many techniques involved collection of airborne particles and counting all large particles at low magnification by optical microscopy.
