Nanoparticle research provides an exciting path forward for numerous industries, but not without risk to health and safety. Understanding the general risks of exposure to naturally occuring and engineered nanoparticulates, as well as the types of containment available for laboratory scale processes is important.

In this webinar, learn about industrial hygiene test methods for nano hoods and new methods to measure containment abilities of hoods used to capture nanoparticulates. The webinar will conclude with an open Q and A session.

David Wasescha is a Kansas City based Product Manager for Labconco Corporation. David manages Labconco's particulate containment enclosures for nanotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. Although a microbiologist at heart, David has also worked in pharmaceutical analytical chemistry. Other products in David's portfolio include biological safety cabinets, clean benches and enclosures. David joined Labconco in 2015.

Dr. Matt 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.

The free webinar hosted by LabRoots on December 12, 2018, will begin at 10:00am PST. To learn more about this event, the continuing education credits offered and to register click here.
