IHPAT Diffusive Sampler Badge Survey – Response Requested

Submit a survey response.
AIHA PAT Programs has recently been made aware of a change in the diffusive badge market. The badge used for the 3M participation in IHPAT Diffusive Sampler Program, 3M 3500, is now discontinued.

The updated model, 3M 3500+ is listed on the 3M IH Sampling Guide with a reference to the Assay Technology AT L-OV (GC/FID) method and the 3M 3500+ will be the same sampling rates for the diffusive sampler contaminants as the Assay Technology 566AT, based upon a review of the Assay Technology Inc ‐ Sampling Guide(PDF) and 3M IH Sampling Guide(PDF).

The Assay Technology 566AT is the badge used for AT participation in the IHPAT Diffusive Sampler Program.
