NIOSH 8310 (Issue 2)


This test method uses inductively-coupled argon plasma and atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) techniques to monitor exposure to the following metals or their compounds: aluminum, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, platinum, silver, strontium, tin, titanium, and zinc. This method measures urine concentrations of the previously mentioned metals. It is particularly useful for workers exposed to several metals simultaneously. This is a simultaneous, multielemental analysis, but is not compound specific.

Analysis Type (Application Method): InductivelyCoupled Argon Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES)
