STAFF

ASL staff is made up of highly trained professional and technical personnel who constantly drive for  quality and excellence in laboratory work. Registered chemists work hand in hand with dedicated and well-trained technicians (Table 1)

ASL has four sections, the Plant & Soil Laboratory (PSL) , the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory (MSL), Equipment and Database Management Section (EDMS) and the Radioisotope Laboratory (RL).  A supervisor is assigned to each section. Section supervisors assist in the day-to-day operations of ASL such as sample scheduling and manpower allocation, evaluating new methods of analysis, performing method development and validation, development of ASL Laboratory Information management System (ASL LIMS) and ensuring run-ready equipment most of the time. A bigger work group is assigned to PSL because of its bigger workload (80-90%) while the MSL and RL share a smaller group. Since our methods are heavily dependent on the proper functioning of various equipment, a third group is in charge of the equipment and data management.

The Laboratory Manager also acts as Radiation Safety Officer of IRRI and ensures management of day-to-day operations with the help of the Instrument Specialist, Researcher, and Lab Supervisor from each section. Seven research technicians constitute the main work force of ASL. They perform routine analysis of plant, soil and water samples by following strict QA program based on ISO 17025 standards, operate sophisticated equipment, process data from analysis and perform day to day preventive maintenance of their assigned equipment. A full time secretary provides secretarial and administrative assistance to all ASL staff.
