||Guidance note on an empirical laboratory method using filters and gravimetric estimation. The smallest quantity of material that may be weighed with this method and with a coefficient of variation of 10% is 50µg. The precision will vary with the balance used and with details of handling procedure. As the determination is gravimetric, any particulate airborne material will contribute to the final figure. Additional information is presented on the properties and occurrence of dust and mists in newspaper print rooms.
