  • Advanced technology improves airborne pathogen measurement

    Many traditional methods for detecting airborne sources of contamination rely on the deposition on these materials on to a surface. For example, surface swabs might be taken, or bioaerosol sampling might be undertaken with a sampler that relies on the impact of biological particles on to a solid growth medium. “These methods are unable to deliver an accurate measurement of airborne ...
