2017 Part 2 - The Relationship of the Field Sampler & The Lab

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About this webinar:

Part 2 of a 4 part series. The quality of data generated by the laboratory is only as good as the quality of the sample collected in the field.

The objective of all environmental projects is to collect relevant and valid data. The environmental testing laboratory needs to work closely with the field sampler(s) to successfully execute any sampling program and to collect a quality sample.

This presentation provides an overview of the information which needs to be coordinated between the field sampler(s) and an environmental testing laboratory to successfully execute a project. It provides information on type of field quality control samples which can be collected, process for Chain of Custody completion, review of bottle types, preservations and holding times as well as packing instructions for coolers and shipping.

What You Will Learn:

  • What are the steps required to execute a sampling event including: laboratory coordination, sampling supplies, and the processes which occur when samples arrive at the lab?
  • How do you fill out a Chain of Custody?
  • How do you pack a cooler?
