Too Hot to Handle: How ECBC Keeps its Cool when Investigating an Unknown Sample - Part V
Introduction (Can be included as a header in all five posts): ECBC is kicking off a week-long blog series that walks you through the process of how the Center’s Chemical Biological Application and Risk Reduction (CBARR) Business Unit safely handles and processes an unknown sample, from onsite recovery to laboratory sample analysis. Unidentified contents can pose great dangers to personnel supporting Department of Defense remediation efforts across the country. With a highly trained and experienced workforce that is certified, vaccinated, cleared and mobile, it is no wonder why ECBC is recognized as a leading entity that can safely determine unknown samples and recommend follow-up protocols to ensure proper handling.
Part V: What happens after a sample is accurately analyzed and indentified?
ECBC issues a final report to the customer regarding the unknown sample. This report includes an analytical narrative, sample summary, photographs, charts and analytical results for all of the tests conducted on the sample. From the data, the customer can accurately assess the situation on the project site and decide the best path forward.
