Airborne Particulates added to the IHPAT Program

The newest contaminant under the IHPAT Program is built for laboratories that analyze airborne particulates by gravimetric analysis

Make sure you are up-to-date - enroll in the Airborne Particulates program by March 1 to receive the April and October samples for the year. The program streamlines the proficiency testing process by providing all the information needed to determine the net mass loading in mg and uses the same media (37-mm, 5-µm PVC filter) as the NIOSH 0500, NIOSH 0600, and NIOSH 5000 methods. The range of the program is 0.5-5 mg per filter, four filters will be sent per round, and the rounds will take place in April and October.

This is a non-destructive proficiency test. The verified and validated samples are yours to keep.
