ANNOUNCING MICROPLASTICS ANALYSIS WORKSHOP 27-28 NOVEMBER 2018
The Dept. of Environment and Health of the Vrije Universiteit has recognized the need for an open interlaboratory study on plastic particles in a variety of sample matrices and has teamed up with interlaboratory study provider QUASIMEME and NIVA to meet this need.
This initiative kicks off with an international workshop in the English language open to all interested participants from around the world, to be held at the VU in Amsterdam 27-28 November 2018. The intention of the workshop is to review analytical issues surrounding microplastics analysis and to gather input for the design of an interlaboratory study from the expert analytical community who are up for the analytical challenge that plastic particles present. An interlaboratory study will be prepared following the workshop. Participants can join the workshop and later register separately for the interlaboratory study (expected in 2019). Read more
