The identification and characterization of microparticles has become an important field of study in recent years due to their presence in the environment and association with pathogenesis. Asbestos fibers have been intensively studied for these reasons. Since conventional microscopy has not provided unique identification of these materials, electron probe microanalysis, which yields chemical data, has been utilized in conjunction with other techniques to provide the necessary answers.The… CONTINUE READING
