A battery powered, low volume air sampling system utilizing polyurethane form (PUF) as a trapping medium has been developed and evaluated. The sampler provides air flows of up to 4 L/min affording theoretical detection limits of less than 0.1 microgram/cu m for most chemicals tested. It is lightweight and portable and operates very quietly which makes it ideally suited for domicillary air sampling or as a personal air monitor.
