RTI will continue to generate and ship proficiency testing samples. RTI is committed to working closely with the AIHA PAT Program and participants to ensure the continued high quality of the BePAT program.
The Beryllium Proficiency Analytical Testing (BePAT) Program serves as an external quality assurance program for organizations analyzing beryllium on filter media. It is designed to assist laboratories in evaluating analytical performance.
Research Triangle Institute (RTI) has been designated to provide, on a triannual basis, four different samples of beryllium, for analysis by participating laboratories. An evaluation report is provided to each laboratory allowing each participant to determine their current capability level and compare to an industry standard.
