Microscopy Instruction, Consultation & Analysis

Advanced Asbestos QA/QC

This is an intensive refresher course in which laboratory personnel advance their analytical skills, boosting day-to-day efficiency and enhancing laboratory efforts to meet and maintain NVLAP and AIHA accreditation. The course reviews all the required AIHA and/or NVLAP procedures including: microscope alignment and effective use; refractive index liquid calibration protocols; measurement and recording of all required optical data; analysis of non-routine samples and identification of rare fibers; contamination control; relevant use of alternate instrumentation; development of in-house training programs; and protocols that allow statistical tracking of relevant performance data.
