On-site Screening of Lead Exposure with PXRF

12/31/2015

Look for a new review of the PXRF technology in the February 2016 issue of Journal of Occupational_Safety_Equipment.jpgOccupational and Environmental Hygiene. This review demonstrates the effectiveness of the PXRF in determining workplace and environmental lead exposure. It is a semi-quantitative method because it does not account for potential lead dust accumulation inside the instrument. There are high correlations between the PXRF results and historical results from a reference lab. There is also a high correlation between the results from an on-site screen wipe test of removable lead and an off-site wet chemistry test of removable lead.
