LIVONIA, MICH. – Khemia Software will be onsite at PITTCON, the premier venue for the laboratory science industry, held March 9-12 at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Khemia will be showing attendees
the Omega 11 Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS).
Not only is PITTCON a place for laboratories to acquire new equipment and tools, it also gives back to education donating nearly a million dollars annually in the form of grants, scholarships, and awards. Khemia Software is excited to be part of this informative and stimulating event which provides laboratory managers with the latest trends in technology and strategic management.
Khemia Software is a premier provider of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and related software solutions for testing laboratories. Founded in 1995, the organization has over 150 successful installations in environmental and industrial hygiene labs worldwide.
“This is a great opportunity for us to get out and interact face-to-face with many of our clients and to address some of the biggest needs that laboratories have for LIMS – speed, accuracy and ease-of-use,” said Khemia President Jerry Singh.
Khemia Software is offering a limited number of PITTCON attendance passes (value of $175 each) for interested attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis. For further information, please contact Ralph Davis at (734) 513-9940 ext. 405 or email@example.com. We hope to see you at PITTCON at our booth 2843 to show you our extemporary product.

EPA has published a draft list of contaminants that are currently not subject to any proposed or promulgated national primary drinking water regulations. These contaminants are known or anticipated to occur in public water systems and may require regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act. This draft list is the fourth Contaminant Candidate List (CCL 4) published by the agency since 1996. This Draft CCL 4 includes 100 chemicals or chemical groups and 12 microbial contaminants. The list is appended to this issue as Attachment 2. (2/5/15; 80 FR 6076) http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-02-04/pdf/2015-02210.pdf
This two hour training course on February 24 will focus on the critical elements that must be considered when documenting the quality and usability of data produced by the analysis of samples from contaminated waste sites. Critical elements discussed in the course include: chain-of-custody; proper sample collection, storage, and preservation; methods and SOPs for preparation and analysis; documentation of processes that affect samples; documentation of the peer review process; and quality control and data validation guidelines. The basic process of data review is discussed in detail, and several tools that have been developed and are in use by EPA to enhance and document this process are also presented.
Please stop by and see the Khemia booth at the Forum on Laboratory Accreditation Feb 2nd – Feb 5th in Crystal City, VA. More details may be found at http://www.nelac-institute.org/forum/.
