In these tests, test atmospheres were not generated; instead, analytes were fortified on the face of the sampler filters. This was followed by pulling conditioned air at 1 L/min. for 4 hours. No difference in sampler performance was noted at any of these temperature/humidity combinations. Evaluati...
