In this work, problems related to calibration of solid phase microextraction (SPME) device were described. The effects of humidity and temperature on organic pollutants sampling from gaseous matrices on a 100 $\mu$m PDMS coated SPME fiber were studied. Standard gaseous mixtures used in these studies were generated by the permeation method and humidified to known lev-els of relative humidity. The SPME-GC-MS based procedure was used to determine organic vapours (carbon tetrachloride, toluene, chlorobenzene, p-xylene and n-decane) in a laboratory air.

Key words: Solid phase microextraction / gas chromatography / calibration / volatile organic air pollutants / mass spectrometry.
