About this webinar

It is important to have knowledge about which sampling techniques to use in occupational settings to optimize the particle sampling strategy. Also, knowledge of the possibility and limitation of the analytical methods will give the participant useful insight which method to use for what purpose.

This webinar aims to give a focused insight of the various sampling methods and analytical techniques for characterizing particles in the work environment. We will highlight pros and cons of the different techniques and methods, with examples from different work environments.

This webinar will consist of three presentations, with time for questions and discussion.

  1. An introduction on sampling particulate matter in the workplace
  2. Real-time measurements used in the work environment
  3. Particle characterization by scanning and transmission electron microscopy.
