This report incorporates information on the design, operation, and testing of a commercial prototype formaldehyde monitor for ambient and indoor air. The instrument incorporates an innovative light collection system and other features that allow a reduction in instrument size compared to previous instruments of this type and that enable cost-effective commercial production. The report includes an Appendix that provides a definitive description of the instrument (called the Methanalyzer), information on its operation, explanations of its operation in many cases, and also representative data taken with the instrument. The main text describes the results of independent testing of the instrument in the EPA laboratories. The results of testing show that the instrument offers a viable alternative for network monitoring of formaldehyde at ambient levels in the sub-ppbv to ppbv range.
