Operator Manual: Wideband Integrated Bioaerosol Sensor (WIBS)

The Wideband Integrated Bioaerosol Sensor-New Electronics Option (WIBS-NEO) is designed to provide highly sensitive measurements of bioaerosols. The instrument uses two UV filtered flashlamp sources to excite fluorescence in individual particles. Detection wavebands have been selected to optimize detection of common bioaerosol components such as tryptophan and nicotinamide adenine di-nucleotide (NADH).

The original WIBS detector was developed by the University of Hertfordshire and is licensed to and manufactured by Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC (DMT).
