Monitoring Methods used by OSHA

Primary Laboratory Sampling/Analytical Method (SLC1):
  • sampling media: Silica Gel Tube (300/150 mg sections, 45/60 mesh)
    analytical solvent: 4:1 Methanol:Water
    maximum volume: 24 Liters
    maximum flow rate: 0.2 L/min
    current analytical method: Gas Chromatography; GC/FID
    method reference: 1, 2 (OSHA modified NIOSH 2007 [28 KB PDF, 5 pages])
    method classification: Fully Validated
    note: Immediately after sampling, transfer each section of the tube to separate vials containing 2 mL desorbing solution [0.12 M HCl in 4:1 methanol:water]. OSHA personnel may obtain vials containing solution from SLTC.
