This third edition of Analytical Chemistry for Technicians is the culmination and ﬁnal product of a series
of four projects funded by the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education Program
and two supporting grants from the DuPont Company. The grant funds have enabled me to utilize an
almost limitless reservoir of human and other resources in the development and completion of this
manuscript and to vastly improve and update the previous edition. A visible example is the CD that
accompanies this book.
The ability to achieve an economically efficient livestock production system and to improve the quality of agricultural research and advice in Vietnam is dependent on the capacity of feed laboratories to provide reliable nutritional and analytical data. Vietnam’s laboratories currently lack the resources and skills to meet both industry needs and the higher accreditation standards for Quality Assurance (QA) set as a Government objective. The proposed activity will assist laboratories to meets these industry needs and government goals by:...
How to hone your analytical skills and obtain high-quality data in the era of GMP requirements
With increased regulatory pressures on the pharmaceutical industry, there is a growing need for capable analysts who can ensure appropriate scientific practices in laboratories and manufacturing sites worldwide.
The proposal provides for short course training in marketing and policy analysis related to the post harvest sector and the resource sectors. Paralleling the short courses will be a number of mini research projects in these areas that will be designed to develop analytical skills of academic staff in the participating institutions.
In addition to understanding the analytical techniques, agricultural lending requires the
understanding and management of uncontrollable risks like weather: crop damage due to
freezing, droughts, hail, floods, and winds. There are always risks in lending, but without
knowledge about the industry, both farmers and lenders are unsure how to mitigate them.
