When collecting air samples for inhalable dust while using IOM samplers, this short video from Maxxam will assist you in achieving best practices. Inhalable dust samples can be analyzed for a variety of parameters, such as particulate, metals and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Please note that sampling should be performed by a person who has training in collecting industrial hygiene samples.
How to collect a surface wipe sample for USP 800 Hazardous Drugs using the ChemoAlert Surface Sampling Kit.
Some sampling methods require a field stabilization step, or desorption, after a filter sample is collected. This short video will explain the general technique used for field stabilization. Field desorption is done in a clean area, free of sample contaminants. Please note that sampling should be performed by a person who has training in collecting industrial hygiene samples.
