Abstract
Many commercial instruments are available for direct-reading analysis of gases and vapors. They operate on a variety of detection principles and vary in performance characteristics such as linear range, specificity, and limits of detection. Direct-reading instruments represent a powerful tool in developing sampling strategies. When correctly used, these instruments can determine in real or near-real time areas of high concentration, workers at highest risk, and processes with the highest emissions. This information can guide the hygienist or safety professional in obtaining samples based on conventional methods and requiring laboratory analyses.
