NIMT Technical Visiting to NIM Metrology on medical devices and food safety in China

Ms. Charuayrat Yaokulbodee, Acting Head of Thermometry and Optical Metrology Department and NIMT staffs paid a technical visit to National Institute of Metrology (NIM) between 7 – 13 July 2019 on Metrology on medical devices and food safety at Changping Campus and Hepingli Campus, NIM, Beijing, China.

The aims of this visiting were to technical exchange related to medical devices and food safety labs and activities as following;

  • Technical exchange on infusion pump and syringe pump.
  • Technical exchange on patient monitor and blood pressure.
  • Technical exchange on blood oximeter.
  • Technical exchange on phototherapy.
  • Technical discussion in Hepingli campus on element and speciation analysis; Sample preparation for arsenic speciation analysis in rice flour and mercury speciation analysis in fish.
  • Determination of arsenic speciation analysis in rice flour and mercury speciation analysis in fish with HPLC-ICP-MS.
  • Lab tour of the particle measurement lab.
    Introduction of the reference membranes for the calibration of β-ray attenuation monitors.
  • Lab tour of the ambient aerosol measurement lab.
    Introduction of the measurement of the penetration curve of PM2.5/PM10 samplers.
  • Technical discussion on related research cooperation in the future.

This project was supported by the Ministry of Higher Education, Sciences, Research and Innovation (MHESI) (former-the Ministry of Sciences and Technology (MOST)) under the Thailand – China Sciences and Technology Cooperation. It was the first project on medical devices and food safety metrology which continue exchanging and joining researches between NIMT and NIM further.
