Laboratory Equipment And Facilities – Operation – Optimization And Safety
Course Description
The need for ensuring consistent and high quality products requires continuous measurements and control of processes. Much of this measurement takes place in laboratories through the use of standardized tests and methods. Similarly the development of new products and processes often requires the use of laboratories and of course laboratory equipment. Understanding the principles of operation and the field of application of such equipment is very important for the laboratory operator and the researcher. But even the most sophisticated equipment is no guarantee for reliable results. The equipment operator must understand and employ the correct procedures for calibration, validation of methods and statistical treatment of measurement uncertainty. Of course laboratories must also be safe places to work in as they often handle materials which are hazardous and toxic to the environment and to humans.
