There are many vendors that offer a badge for monitoring the chemicals
you mention. Here is one link that might get you started.

Subject: [Histonet] Exposure levels

Following a chat with our Health & Safety Officer, I'm looking for
suggestions on how to monitor air levels of the following chemicals:
Xylene Chloroform Formalin

We have a well vented lab and follow all the usual precautions but would
like to check that we are not poisoning ourselves too much. How do you
measure exposure in your labs? Ideally I'm looking for a badge that a
person could wear to measure individual exposure, but I don't know if
they exist. Our Safety Officer has looked in to this, but has been
unable to come up with a definite answer so I thought I would turn to
the experts. Thanks
