Diisocyanate enclosure with Buck Elite-5 Sampling Pump
Ambient Air Monitor

Used for collecting ambient diisocyanate compounds using the Buck Elite-5 personal air sampling pump in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s OSHA #42. Samples are collected by drawing a known volume of air through glass fiber filters coated with 0.1 mg of 1-(2-pyridyl) piperazine (1-2PP) which are contained in open face cassettes. Samples are extracted with 90/10 (v/v) acetonitrile/dimethyl sulfoxide (ACN/DMSO) and analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using an ultraviolet or fluorescence detector. The Buck Elite pump is a battery-powered, data logging personal air sampler that is capable of programmed start/stop and duration sampling. The pump can store seven days of data in its internal memory if data is logged every minute.
