Abstract
Over the last 15 years, a number of new instruments have been developed with the help of government funding. With the monetary cutbacks in the last several years, little further funding has gone to dust instrument development; however, work has continued in evaluating various instruments and integrating the instruments with other types of measurements. The instruments have been shown to be useful in evaluating sources of exposure and providing quantitative feedback unavailable from more traditional measurement methods. Current trends in instrument development seem to point largely in an evolutionary direction, with aerosol sensors being miniaturized and becoming more integrated with other technologies such as computers and video systems. Increased computerization and miniaturization will hopefully produce instruments that are more reliable, self-diagnostic, and "user friendly." With these instruments, the health professional will be more able and willing to make aerosol measurements on a routine basis and solve workplace health problems.
