||Evaluation of a chemical spot-test kit for the detection of airborne particulate lead in the workplace
||Feb. 1996, Vol.57, No.2, p.161-165. 19 ref.
||In an evaluation of a rhodizonate-based spot-test kit, more than 350 air samples were collected at abrasive blasting lead paint abatement sites. Filter samples were tested with the kit and then analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Experimental data were statistically modelled to estimate the performance parameters of the kit. The identification limit of the kit was approximately 3.6µg/filter sample. 95% confidence of a positive reading was found for lead mass values above approximately 10µg Pb/filter; 95% confidence of a negative reading was found for lead masses below approximately 0.6µg Pb/filter. The kit may be used for on-site screening of lead in workplace air.
