    Get the latest research available on surface and dermal sampling to assess contamination levels and detect harmful agents. Twenty peer-reviewed papers discuss sampling techniques, analytical measurement technologies, reference materials, standardization, occupational hygiene, decontamination methods, and quality assurance.

    Topics cover:

    Standardization Issues—includes papers which summarize current standards for surface and dermal sampling and the need for additional standards, particularly in the area of dermal sampling

    Dermal—addresses contaminants on skin, including sampling, removal, and adherence of contaminated materials to the skin

    Lead—deals with sampling, sample preparation, analytical proficiency testing, and lead dust loadings on surfaces other than skin

    Beryllium—covers beryllium surface contamination in various industries and measurement of beryllium on surface wipe samples

    Asbestos—deals with evaluation of samples collected from surfaces contaminated with asbestos

    Pharmaceuticals—focuses on occupational exposure to pharmaceutical substances, as well as spills and leakage of antibiotics on surfaces

    General Topics—covers investigations of outdoor environmental surface particulate; microbiological contamination on surfaces; assessments of properties contaminated with methamphetamine; and more.
