Please join the Pittsburgh AIHA on May 21, 2015 for a PDC on Aerosol Sampling and Analytical Methods.
Dr. Martin Harper will provide a 4-hour course on aerosol sampling and analytical methods with the following content:
- High flow-rate sampling for silica
- New NIOSH methods for mineral acids
Issues of analytical procedures and quality assurance will be discussed as they relate to the selection of sampling methods. In addition, there will be short discussions on recent developments in other topics of interest, such as metalworking fluids, isocyanates, semi-volatiles (pesticides and PAH’s), ultrafine sampling and biological aerosols.
