In our original article, results of HDI monomer analyses using the MAP method were inadvertently substituted for HGI oligomer results in the data analysis. The information concerning the MAP method in Figure 2 and Table V are, therefore, incorrect. Corrected versions of Figure 2 and Table V are shown below. The corrected data indicates that, for the limited amount of data collected with the MAP, there was no significant difference between the MAP polyisocyanate sampling results and those found with either the Iso-Chek or the NIOSH 5521 methods. There was a significant difference between the MAP and the NIOSH 5522 polyisocyanate sampling results. The MAP data suggest that the collection efficiency of impingers (NIOSH 5521, NIOSH 5522, and the MAP methods) and filter cassettes in the closed-face mode (Iso-Chek) are similar for the type of aerosol encountered in this study.
