AC20 Laboratory Sessions


Coverage of new ELAP regulations supported by LabWorks, waterLIMS™

ELAP will be one of several hot topics at AC20 in Reno. This year we are joining with the Nevada Water Environment Association in Reno to co-host several events. Reno is a fantastic city with affordable hotel rates and restaurants. This might be one of the largest ACs yet.
