New methods and techniques for direct reading and lab analyzed sampling are being developed that provide industrial hygienists with the tools needed to evaluate an array of challenging occupational exposures. This roundtable will provide real time and lab analyzed sampling methods you might consider adding to your IH toolbox, as well as, thoughtful approaches to sampling strategy for the evaluation of exposures and efficacy of controls.
