From Abstract: "In the following paper, the two customary methods of calibrating cascade impactors are compared. It is shown that the method of determining collection efficiency as a function of particle size for each stage provides information for interpreting results in terms of impactor theory, making it possible to establish adequate jet performance."
From Introduction: "The purpose of this paper is first to present a positive, but initial, approach that has been taken to meet these requirements, and second to report in detail the ultramicro method developed and evaluated for determining serum bilirubin. Subsequent publications will set forth the techniques finalized for other biochemical constituents."
