Particle Sampling and Characterization in the Work Environment
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 course aims to give a focused insight of the various sampling methods and analytical techniques for characterizing particles in the work environment. This webinar will highlight pros and cons of the different techniques and methods, with examples from different work environments.
This webinar will consist of four presentations, with time for questions and discussion.
- An introduction on sampling particulate matter in the workplace
- Real-time measurements used in the work environment
- Particle characterisation by scanning electron microscopy
- Single particle analysis with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
The webinar will take place on the 17th of November 2023 at 10.00-12.00 am CET (Central European Time).
A more detailed program will be published later.
The webinar is free of charge.
