Hi  Sandy,
     Here in the UK, Surgipath Europe Ltd supply 'Airchek' badges for
formaldehyde and xylene. They can measure the OES ( occupational
exposure standard - measured over 8hrs ) and the MEL ( maximum exposure
level -  15mins at peak exposure ). Not sure if this equates to TWA and
STEL, or if they are "approved". I've never used the badges , so can't
really comment on them, but it may be worth contacting Surgipath for
info.  If you need their E-mail address just let me know.
	Hope this helps,
