I've seen filters, swabs, sticky pads... what are some options, and pros/cons of each type?

In particular, what is the easiest way to collect a sample, if you're looking for something like 3-5 micron particles of respirable silica?

Ack! Indeed, and oops. I'll mark this as an answer. Sometimes this happens on GitHub and we should think about ways to help with duplicated questions! Thanks!!!
