Monitoring Methods used by OSHA

Primary Laboratory Sampling/Analytical Method (SLC1):

  • sampling media: Polytetrafluoroethylene Filter 5 micron
    maximum volume: 500 Liters
    maximum flow rate: 3.0 L/min
    current analytical method: High Performance Liquid Chromatography; HPLC/UL47
    method reference: 1 (NIOSH 5013 [28 KB PDF, 5 pages])
    method classification: Fully Validated
    note: This method does not differentiate between different o-Dianisidine Dyes. Protect samples from heat & light.

    sampling media: Glass Fiber Filter (37 mm)
    maximum volume: 100 Liters
    maximum flow rate: 1 L/min
    current analytical method: High performance liquid chromatography; HPLC/UV/Visible
    method reference: 2 (OSHA In-House File)
    method classification: Not Validated
    note: This method differentiates between different o-dianisidine based dyes. See individual dye of interest. Protect samples from heat & light.

Conditions: Column: C18 Mobile Phase: Detector Wavelength: 280nm Detection Limit: 20.4ug/sample

Wipe Sampling Method:

  • sampling media: Glass Fiber Filter

Bulk Method:

  • For any dye analysis, a bulk sample of the dye must be sent to the Salt Lake Technical Center. Limit the amount of bulk submitted to one gram or approx. one mL.
