Title First European intercomparison with a formaldehyde diffusive sampler
Bibliographic information Arbetsmiljöinstitutet, Förlagstjänst, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1994. 14p. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract This document presents the results of analyses performed by 22 European laboratories using a diffusive sampler at four different formaldehyde concentrations. Although the majority of the participating laboratories used this diffusive sampler for the first time, the results can be considered quite good as 42-75% performed within ±10% of the target. A second round of testing is planned within this project which aims at improving the quality of aldehyde measurements in workplace air.
