Paper Abstract

Current technology for monitoring personal exposures to vapor-phase toxic materials is both instrument and labor intensive. It is desirable to devise a system for monitoring such exposures using simpler equipment coupled with more rapid quantitation. Immunochemical sensors provide an avenue for developing such vapor monitoring systems because of their high sensitivity and selectivity, and the ease with which they provide quantitative information on analyte concentrations. Immunochemical personal exposure monitors (PEMs) are currently being developed for assaying pentachiorophenol (PCP) sampled from ambient air. These devices will demonstrate the feasibility of direct, antibody based sampling of analytes from air with subsequent quantitation of the analyte by enzyme immunoassay.
