Experimental systems were developed in two laboratories for measuring the sampling efficiency of personal inhalable aerosol samplers in low air movement environments, using sedimenting aerosols. The sampling efficiencies of four types of personal inhalable or total dust samplers were evaluated. Sampling efficiencies for the IOM, GSP and seven-hole samplers measured using this system were generally higher than wind tunnel results.
