This manual describes an interim electron microscope (EM) procedure for measuring the concentration of asbestos in water samples. The main features of the method include filtering the sample through a sub-micron polycarbonate membrane filter, examining an EM specimen grid in a transmission electron microscope (TEM), and verifying fiber identity by selected area electron diffraction (SAED). This interim method is a revision of the procedure issued in 1976 and reflects the improvements that have been made in asbestos analytical methodology since that time.
