Title Performance of sulfur dioxide passive monitors
Bibliographic information Oct. 1985, Vol.46, No.10, p.599-608. Illus. 21 ref.
Abstract NIOSH evaluation of 4 commercial devices: Dupont Pro-Tek C-20, MSA Vaporgard, REAL biobadges and 3M Nutshell monitors. The experiments conducted were designed to test all the factors critical to the operation of passive dosimeters: accuracy, precision, capacity, stability, analytical recovery, effects of environmental parameters, chemical interference. Only the MSA device did not perform satisfactorily. The 3M badge was withdrawn by the manufacturer after only partial evaluation.
