Other Metals Wipe Sampling


Surface contamination for most non-volatile, non-reactive chemicals can be measured using wipe samples. Whatman 42 filter paper or Palintest wipes are the media of choice, although these materials may contain some compounds which may interfere with analysis. Before performing wipe sampling it is best to call the lab at 800-446-0403 to determine if the compound of interest can be analyzed as a wipe sample. For each group of samples, a blank wipe must be included.
