  • Next NAMP Teleconference
    Monday, April 10, 2017 at 9:00 am MT (11:00 am ET)
  • New NAMP Leadership
    The Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) has assumed leadership of the National Analytical Management Program (NAMP) and will serve as head of the Department of Energy’s Environmental Response Laboratory Network Coordination Office. NAMP welcomes Tony Polk as the DOE Management Sponsor and SRNL Fellow Scientist Cecilia DiPrete as the new NAMP Director.
  • Savannah River National Lab Director, Terry Michalske, highlights the need for the next generation of nuclear workers. In the Augusta Chronicle, Dr. Michalsk emphasized the need for an education pipeline to train new researchers, and the Aiken Standard reported that the SRNL Director advised the South Carolina Governor’s Nuclear Advisory Council of the need for academic programs to address the aging workforce, noting that he has been directed by DOE Secretary Ernest Moniz to assess what the future looks like for the lab’s “ability to maintain a nuclear science and technology component in this country.”
  • Dr. Patricia Paviet joins the Office of Nuclear Technology Research and Development in the Department of Energy as the Director of the Office of Materials and Chemical Technologies
  • NAMP Radiochemistry Webinars

    NAMP offers web-based lectures on specific radiochemistry topics developed in cooperation with the EPA, other Federal agencies, and university partners. Each webinar series presents short (1 ½- to 2-hour) webinars on specific radiochemistry topics presented by renowned university professors and leading scientists in radiochemistry. The selected topics are designed to strengthen the participant in areas of professional engineering practice identified by the nuclear industry or national laboratories, including but not limited to actinide chemistry in the environment and in the nuclear fuel cycle.

    The webinar topics in the upcoming Series 5 will examine environmental radiochemistry and other related special topics. The webinar topics in this series incorporate the expertise of companion disciplines such as geochemistry, materials science, nuclear engineering and environmental science, which can provide accurate measurements and analysis important for adressing environmental concerns

  • Please plan to join us on April 27, 2017 at 1 pm EDT (Noon CDT) for Tritium: Sample Collection, Preservation, and Analysis, by Dr. Robert Litman.

    Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen that is present naturally in the environment and is also produced as a result of fission. The different methods of sample collection and analytical preparation for tritium analysis are presented for different matrices. The chemistry of tritium its environmental distribution, commercial uses, methods of analysis and interferences will be discussed as well.

  • Competency Guidelines for Public Health Laboratory Professionals Released The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Association for Public Health Laboratories (APHL) have published Competency Guidelines for Public Health Laboratory Professionals to help support continuous quality improvement of the entire public health laboratory system (governmental public health, environmental and agricultural laboratories). This document was developed and reviewed by approximately 170 subject matter experts and represents the first-ever comprehensive set of competencies for laboratory professionals. Environmental laboratories may use these competencies to improve their organizational capacity in general laboratory domains (e.g., quality management system, ethics, emergency management and response), cross-cutting domains (e.g., surveillance, informatics) and specialized domains (e.g., microbiology and chemistry for environmental matrices).
