Abstract Personal and area samples were taken in 8 medical school laboratories over a 12-week period, using the NIOSH P & CAM 125 impinger method. 44% of all breathing zone samples exceeded the 1ppm ceiling value recommended by ACGIH. Only 11% of the area samples were in excess of 1ppm. Overall concentrations measured ranged from 0.3 to 2.6ppm.
