AIHce 2017 Course – Exposure monitoring for VOCs
Friday, 24 February 2017 at 10:57:AM
Practical aspects of using thermal desorption (TD) for exposure monitoring will be explained on a half-day professional development course at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo (AIHce) on 4 June 2017 in Seattle, WA, USA.
The course, “Exposure monitoring for VOCs, utilizing thermal desorption tubes, both passively and actively” (PDC 602), will be led by Markes International’s Environmental Specialist, Dr Nicola Watson, and will cover:
- Sampling strategies for thermal desorption.
- Pumped sampling – including a hands-on session with TD pumps.
- Passive sampling – experimental techniques, calculation of diffusive uptake rates, and environmental conditions.
- Selecting and combining sorbents for successful monitoring.
- Analytical method development for laboratories.
By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
- Decide the best sampling technique for the application.
- Calculate uptake rates from experimental data for compound–sorbent pairs.
- Design a sorbent tube capable of capturing the VOCs of interest.
A full description of the course can be found on the AIHce website (click here).
Registration for the course can be done online here, ensuring that the “PDC – Half-day” option is selected. Reduced fees apply up until the 3 April 2017.
