  • Good laboratory practice

    Regulatory requirements and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) applied in the relevant manufacturing sector.

  • Laboratory techniques

    Techniques applied in the different fields of natural science in order to obtain experimental data such as gravimetric analysis, gas chromatography, electronic or thermic methods.

Skills

  • Monitor manufacturing quality standards

    Monitor quality standards in manufacturing and finishing process.

  • Adhere to standard procedures

    Adhere to and follow the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).

  • Document analysis results

    Document on paper or on electronic devices the process and the results of the samples analysis performed.

  • Communicate test results to other departments

    Communicate testing information such as testing schedules, samples testing statistics and test results, to the relevant departments.

  • Perform laboratory tests

    Carry out tests in a laboratory to produce reliable and precise data to support scientific research and product testing.

  • Use chemical analysis equipment

    Use the laboratory equipment such as Atomic Absorption equimpent, PH and conductivity meters or salt spray chambre.

  • Oversee quality control

    Monitor and assure the quality of the provided goods or services by overseeing that all the factors of the production meet quality requirements. Supervise product inspection and testing.

  • Test chemical samples

    Perform the testing procedures on the already prepared chemical samples, by using the necessary equipment and materials. Chemical sample testing involves operations such as pipetting or diluting schemes.

  • Calibrate laboratory equipment

    Calibrate laboratory equipment by comparing between measurements: one of known magnitude or correctness, made with a trusted device and a second measurement from another piece of laboratory equipment. Make the measurements in as similar a way as possible.

  • Use non-destructive testing equipment

    Use specific non-destructive testing methods and equipment that do not cause any damage to the product, such as X-rays, ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle inspection, industrial CT scanning and others, in order to find defects in and assure quality of a manufactured and a repaired product.

  • Record test data

    Record data which has been identified specifically during preceding tests in order to verify that outputs of the test produce specific results or to review the reaction of the subject under exceptional or unusual input.

  • Use ICT systems

    Select and use ICT systems for a variety of complex tasks in order to meet a variety of needs.

  • Work safely with chemicals

    Take the necessary precautions for storing, using and disposing chemical products.

  • Prepare chemical samples

    Prepare the specific samples such as gas, liquid or solid samples in order for them to be ready for analysis, labeling and storing samples according to specifications.
