Vaportest Air Monitoring Badges are simple and effective devices that collect contaminants through the scientific principle of diffusion. They meet or exceed OSHA accuracy requirements of ±25% at 95% confidence level for many work contaminants.
Made from a plastic housing that contains a permeable, absorbent membrane that can be lab tested. Multiple substances can be sampled on a single badge at the same time, helping you assess the exposure level of the gases and vapours around you.
The Organic Vapour Vaportest Air Monitoring Badges are for Xylene and also be used for IPA & Toluene.
Exposure time: Anything from 15 minutes to 8 hours*
*Accurate exposure time must be recorded on the Analysis Request Form in order to be valid for analysis.
Varies- dependent upon chemical of interest
Solvent desporation, gas chromatography/flame ionization detector (GC/FID)
2 years from the date of manufacture at <39.2F (4 C)
Before use: Store at ambient temperature or < 39.2 F (4 C). If storing at < 39.2 F(4 C), bring to ambient temperature before sampling.
Note: Storage at < 39.2 F (4 C) is
Validated for 15-min and 8-hr occupational exposure sampling. Lab and fi eld studies conducted with several compounds show suitability for 24-hr air sampling.
Dependent upon the chemical of interest. For compound-specific sampling rates.
