Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A unique agar drum sampler is described which indicates, continuously, the number of viable, bacterial particles per unit volume of air at the time and point of sampling. By selection of the timer and the sampling rate the sampler is suitable for quite a wide range of concentration and time. An impaction line of 484 in. greatly increases the capacity of this device over slit samplers and other instruments designed to give time-concentration data for viable airborne particles. This sampler should prove useful for: (i) monitoring airborne bacteria in hospitals, public places, and food and industrial plants; (ii) decay rate studies of bacterial aerosols; (iii) evaluation of aerial germicides; (iv) determination of effectiveness of air conditioning systems in removing airborne bacteria; and (v) many other studies in aerobiology.
