Abstract:

The generation, sampling, and analysis system used for low-level GB inhalation studies was modified to test the nerve agent GF. A saturator cell used in conjunction with an inhalation chamber generated low level OF vapor at concentrations ranging from 0.004 - 0.05 mgcu m. Additional testing with a syringe drive spray atomization system generated OF vapor concentrations from 0.7 - 2 mgcu m. This capability was important to determine sub-lethal effects primarily meioses for inhalation toxicology studies. In addition, the techniques successfully employed for this study would lay the foundation for testing low-level VX.
