    Work Item: ASTM WK28503 - New Guide for Aerosolizating and Sampling of microbial agents

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E35.15 | Committee E35 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Scope

    To survey and recommend methods for aerosol production and sampling for viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

    The guide is needed to provide a central location for information pertaining to bioaerosol studies. The literature is replete with studies on bioaerosols, but they dramatically vary among reserachers and not all researchers appear to be fully knowlegable in some of the pit falls associated with bioaersol studies.


    Keywords

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
