NIOSH 1981 Dec:175 pages
The performance of three commercial passive personal samplers for organic vapors is described. The methods of testing and evaluation are considered emphasizing sampler testing for accuracy and precision, effects of concentration, orientation, humidity, temperature, and storage, and efficiency of desorption. Recommendations are made on routine handling. The authors conclude that under certain conditions these samplers can substitute for traditional active sampling methodologies.
