The performance of the candidate EC reference sampler for thoracic and inhalable particles has been assessed under ambient field conditions. Comparability and precision are at a very acceptable level of a few percent only. The inhalable samples mode does meet a compliance criterium of 10% with the target CEN/ISO convention for inhaled particles. The thoracic option clearly overestimates the pertinent target concentrations (between 20 and 50%).
