B&W Tek, Inc., an advanced instrumentation company that delivers lab quality Raman spectroscopy solutions through user-friendly mobile platforms, conducted a security training earlier this month at 3 sites of the Taiwan Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Emergency Response Teams.
Katherine Bakeev, the Director of Analytical Services and Support, visited these sites in early May to conduct a 2-hour training session covering Raman spectroscopy, TacticID operation, laser safety, data management and synchronization via TID.
“They were all enthusiastic to learn about Raman technology and specifically how to use the TacticID in their work,” Bakeev explained. “The training included lots of interaction and hands-on use of the TacitcID on samples we provided. Participants were excited about the capability to measure samples as they are encountered in actual incident scenes without having to do any sample preparation. The easy-to-use touchscreen and high quality screen with quick results will be a real asset in the work done by the emergency responders.”
The EPA has 7 centers across Taiwan; each staffed 24 hours a day with response teams to provide onsite support and assist government relief agencies with environmental monitoring and emergency advice. The training was attended by emergency responders from all 7 of the national EPA sites.
“They’ve purchased 7 TacticID-GP units to aid them in their work,” Bakeev said. “This adds to their capabilities to rapidly identify unknown substances as part of their incidence response work and handling of toxic compounds.”
