NIOSH 7702

LEAD BY FIELD PORTABLE XRF

This is a field portable analytical method, particularly useful for the analysis of initial exposure assessment samples, or for applications where laboratory analysis is impractical. Additionally, the method is non-destructive; samples analyzed in the field can later be analyzed in a laboratory. The method is applicable to all elemental lead forms, including lead fume, and all other aerosols containing lead.

Analysis Type (Application Method): X-ray fluorescence (XRF), portable L-shell excitation
