The method finder, table of contents, and indexes have also been updated to coincide with the changes. The replacement pages are included. The manual is a collection of air, biological, bioaerosol, and bulk analytical methods that NIOSH has evaluated. NMAM will be updated as methods are developed, evaluated or revised by NIOSH. These methods are intended to promote accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity in industrial hygiene analyses. The introduction states the purpose and use of the manual. Subsequent sections discuss the quality assurance, sampling, measurements, methods, standards, blanks, blind samples, recovery studies, duplicates, tracking, and reporting. In addition, information to be considered when sampling for airborne contaminants; types and uses of solid sorbents; factors affecting the collection of gases, vapors, and aerosols; sampling strategy and calibration techniques; and samplers is presented.
