Method 63


This method describes the sample collection and analysis of carbaryl (sevin). Samples are collected by drawing known volumes of air through OSHA versatile sampler (OVS-2) tubes, containing a glass fiber filter and two sections of XAD-2 adsorbent. Samples are extracted with acetonitrile and analyzed by HPLC using a UV detector. The OVS-2 is a specially prepared glass tube containing a glass fiber filter and XAD-2 resin which will collect both vapor and aerosol.
