Two Major Events to Celebrate in 2015

    In order to assure that potentially hazardous substances being submitted to McCrone Associates, Inc. (MA) for analysis are handled, stored, and disposed of safely and properly, we request that you complete and submit this form to MA for evaluation and approval prior to submitting samples for analysis. This form does not supersede or replace the need for a client to submit a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) when available and/or sample submission form, but rather is intended to be used as a pre-receipt hazard assessment tool by McCrone Project Leaders to complement the SDS or provide information where no SDS is available. Controls and procedures recommended should be consistent with those for handling the material in your workplace. Please seek assistance from your company's Environmental, Health and Safety Department, as necessary. Receipt of this form by MA does not constitute an acceptance of the sample for analysis. MA cannot receive materials that require a RAM license, contain actinides, and/or exhibit current or past radioactivity.

    This year marks the 350th anniversary of Micrographia, the historic book authored by Robert Hooke and published in 1665. Hooke’s detailed observations using a variety of lenses and depicted with numerous copperplate engravings of the miniature world made major scientific contributions, and inspired significant public interest in the emerging discipline of optical microscopy.

    The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL2015). Championed by scientific organizations around the world, IYL2015 promotes understanding of the importance of light and optical technologies in the modern world, and its goals include highlighting the importance of education and careers in scientific fields that explore light and its applications.

    These two events are especially significant, and relevant, to Hooke College of Applied Sciences (HCAS). Named for Robert Hooke, HCAS continues the development of microanalytical techniques at the highest level. This year, HCAS will offer more than 40 courses relevant to current and future technical occupations in chemistry, biology and microscopy with an emphasis on materials analysis to the technical and educational community around the world.
