NIOSH Method 7703: Hexavalent Chromium by Field-Portable Spectrophotometry
CHROMIUM, HEXAVALENT, 7703 by Field-Portable Spectrophotometry
This method is designed to be used in the field, but can also be utilized in the fixed-site laboratory. It is an alternative to laboratory methods such as NIOSH method 7605 or OSHA method ID-215 (hot plate digestion and ion chromatography). NIOSH method 7600 is a similar procedure, but no separation step is used. A field method not involving a Cr[VI] isolation step, MDHS method 61, has been promulgated by the British Health and Safety Executive .
