DEHP substitutes for quantitative fit testing, results of pilot study comparing prediction of fit factor between DEHP, corn oil and NaCl.
NIOSH 1981 Oct; :1-8
A pilot man-fit test study has been completed in the division of safety research. This type of study was done to provide estimates of the variances that will be encountered in a larger more comprehensive study, discover any unforeseen difficulties in the experimentation; and give a preliminary examination of corn oil and sodium chloride (NACL) as substitutes before seeking approval for human subject testing with corn.
