Labconco Explores Best Practices for Nanoparticle Hazard Containment

Share Article

In this webinar, which LabRoots will host September 28, speakers will address the basics of nanoparticles and recognized methods for containment using ventilated safety enclosures.

David Wasescha, Product Manager, Labconco Corporation; Matt Hull, PhD Senior Research Scientist at NanoSafe

Nanoparticle research provides an exciting path forward for numerous industries, but not without risk to health and safety. By learning and implementing best practices for containment using ventilated safety enclosures, many of these risks could be eliminated.

In this webinar, attendees will gain a better understanding of a method for safely testing nanotechnology hoods. They will be a part of an in-depth discussion on unknown nanoparticle risks factors in a research environment and what lab tools and instruments appropriately contain nanoparticulates.

Participants of this webinar will also gain a greater understanding the containment challenges associated with nanoparticles. They will learn about specialized industrial hygiene testing methods for the detection of nanoparticles how to select containment enclosures that are appropriate for nanoparticles.

The team at Labconco has arranged for two speakers for this event; David Wasescha, product manager with Labconco Corporation, and Dr. Matt Hull, a senior research scientist at NanoSafe.

Holding a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Kansas, Wasescha joined Labconco in 2015 and now manages Labconco's particulate containment enclosures for nanotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. Although a microbiologist at heart, he has also worked in pharmaceutical analytical chemistry. Other products in Wasescha’s portfolio include water purification products, glassware washers, and glove boxes.

Hull earned both his Master’s and doctorate degree from Virginia Tech in biology and civil and environmental engineering respectively. In 2003, Hull developed the concept for the NanoSafe™ framework, which provided an integrated risk management strategy for nanotechnology facilities. The NanoSafe framework eventually led to spin-off programs such as nanotechnology waste recovery and recycling processes, life-cycle ecotoxicological studies of nanomanufacturing, and nanomechanical sensors for chemical and biological agent detection.

LabRoots will host this webinar on September 28th, 2017, beginning at 12:00 p.m. PDT, 2:00 p.m. CDT. To learn more about this event, the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
