New Sampling Methods for Airborne Microorganisms

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
February 27, 2001 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Bldg 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Klaus Willeke and his international team of engineers, physicists, microbiologists, industrial hygienists and environmental scientists have worked for about 15 years on the development of new methods for sampling airborne microorganisms. The following topics will be highlighted: long-term bioaerosol sampling into liquid by swirling air motion ("Biosampler"); personal aerosol sampling with low wind sensitivity and highfilter deposit uniformity ("Button Aerosol Sampler"); collection of microorganisms by electrostatic means; source testing as a predictor for microorganism release from surfaces; particle concentrating from large air volumes to small ones; and microorganism dispersion techniques for instrument calibration.
