RTI Offers Web-based Evaluation of LDTD for High-throughput Analysis of Controlled Substances & Toxicology

Continuing Education and Training in Forensic Sciences is offered by RTI.  Their programs are supported by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and cover a number of forensic topics, including best practices, current advances, classic principles, interpretation, and medical legal testimony.  RTI has posted more than 30 courses related to forensic toxicology, with more added continuously. These web-based classes are free or low cost, and are suitable for forensic and medical professionals, law enforcement and ancillary professionals.

A new free presentation entitled The Evaluation of Laser Diode Thermal Desorption (LDTD) for High Throughput Analysis of Controlled Substances and Toxicology in Forensic Sciences, is conducted by Nichole Bynum, Forensic Scientist, at RTI International, and starts April 29, 2014.

RTI International is one of the world’s leading research institutes, dedicated to improving the human condition by turning knowledge into practice. This dedication has been reflected in RTI’s Center for Forensic Sciences which employs many of the United States leading toxicologists and has been managing the National Lab Certification Program for more than 20 years. The training program project initiative was started by Drs. Jeri Ropero-Miller and Peter Stout of RTI’s Center for Forensic Sciences.

This is a National Institute of Justice (NIJ)-supported offering and is provided through the FTCOE and forensicED.org.
