A useful sampling technique should have a known and reproducible removal rate of dust on various surfaces and be able to achieve a relatively constant efficiency at different loadings of surface dust accumulation. In addition, the procedure should be able to collect and measure the low and medium volatility organics which are expected to be found on dust particles. Finally, the data collected should be capable of being compared to the actual dust uptake by a test subject. The paper reports on the development of a sampler designed to meet these objectives.
