Research: Quantifing Bioaerosols in the Ambient Air
Sampling methods and suitable extraction methods were explored to quantify bioaerosols in urban outdoor air. The focus of study was on measuring proteins, carbohydrates, endotoxins, and nucleic acids as well as finding both the total number of bacteria and amount of viable bacteria.
