Aerobiology

Aerobiology is a branch of the biological sciences dealing with the presence of organic particulates in the air of indoor or outdoor environments. It encompasses aero-microbiology which deals with the presence of micro-organisms in the air. Continuous monitoring of aerobiology is of importance in manufacturing and healthcare settings, given possibility of contamination or associated infection and disease. The study of aerobiology is greatly facilitated through the use of environmental test chambers, where by aerosolised microorganisms can be tested for viability.
