      The Use of Test Kits in the Field and Laboratory

TNI Webinar – 1.5 hours

Course Description:

It is not unusual to for laboratory analysts and field personnel to use analytical test kits. They are especially popular with water and wastewater operators who may not have a laboratory background. Test kits are created to be simple to use. Because of this, it is easy to overlook whether the test kit is appropriate for the parameter being analyzed and whether the test kit meets requirements for NELAP accreditation.

This presentation will discuss how - and when - test kits can be used in the environmental lab. It will also discuss how to consistently produce accurate and reliable results when using test kits, whether results will be used for regulatory purposes or for process control.

Learning Objectives:

  • Knows how to determine if a test kit is appropriate for regulatory testing

  • Knows how test kits may differ from other published methods

  • Knows how to ensure that a test kit analysis meets the TNI Environmental Laboratory Standard

Be aware of additional quality control that may not be included in test kit instructions

Please take the time as Lab Professionals to be familiar with the 2016 TNI Standard. as well as the NH ENV-C Rules. Even just read a little each day. You will be doing yourself and your Laboratory an invaluable service. Those of you certified in Massachusetts should be familiar with 310CMR and QSM Version 6.0 for The Department of Defense and Energy.
