Abstract:
Following the last session of the X2012 conference, the EU funded Nanodevice project will host a free seminar to showcase the next generation of instruments being developed for nanoparticle exposure measurement in the workplace. This seminar is designed to inform occupational hygienists, exposure scientists, safety officers and other health professionals on how the hazard identification and exposure measurement challenges from nanomaterials are being met. For further information and notification of your attendance please go to www.nano-device.eu.
