||Chemical exposures in research laboratories in a university
||Mar. 2008, Vol.46, No.2, p.166-173. Illus. 28 ref.
||Research laboratories in a Japanese university were investigated for airborne levels of organic solvents and specified chemical substances. Repeated surveys revealed that the solvent concentrations were in excess of permissible levels only in a few laboratories and none with regard to specified chemicals. Such conditions were achieved primarily by extensive installation and use of local exhaust systems. The survey further revealed that types of chemicals used in research laboratories were extremely varied but used only in small amounts. Therefore, it appears more appropriate to make personal exposure assessments rather than evaluation of levels in the air of research laboratories.
