Skin vapor absorption is one of the major exposure routes for some widely used chemicals (e.g., 2-methoxy ethanol), but a good apparatus with which exposure can be measured is currently unavailable. In this study, a polished stainless-steel chamber-combined with computer-controlled auto-feedback software and hardware, real-time gas sensors, and an auto-injection microsyringe-was proposed as new technology. In addition, the machines had activated-charcoal tubes and cold traps, both of which… CONTINUE READING
