Waste anesthetic gases are found in medical, dental, and veterinary workplaces.  Employees should be monitored to determine exposure levels, and protect worker health.  For this badge, the collection media is 150 mg of activated carbon in a PTFE binder. 

The anesthetic gases are much more stable when toluene is used as the desorbtion solvent rather than carbon disulfide, as is used in OSHA 103.

The badge is the same as the 566 badge.  The only difference is in the labeling and analysis. Laboratories or customers using their own lab should order Item N566AT.
