Portable air samplers draw air through a collection medium onto which atmospheric particles or gases are deposited; at the end of the sampling period, the collection medium is removed from the sampler and analyzed at a field or central laboratory. Responders use these devices when responding to emergencies involving possible atmospheric radioactivity releases.
The Portable High Volume Air Samplers for Measuring Radioactivity Market Survey Report is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
