Validation of a fluorescence-microscopy-method for analyses of bioaerosol samples from different workplaces

Project number: F 2186 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Completed Project


The cultivation based method to quantify the total microbial load of air at workplaces is very time consuming, intensive in manpower and material. Simultaneously the force of results often is limited. At this project, a known fluorescence microscopy-method for total cell count should be validated to analyses aerosols at working places to overcome the problems of cultivation dependent methods.
