Bioaerosols

Small particles with far-reaching effects on health and the environment

Bioaerosols, or primary biological aerosol particles (PBAP), have a significant impact on the relationships between our atmosphere, climate, biosphere, and public health. Pollen, airborne bacteria, fungal spores, and other bioparticles have many roles in the Earth system. The reproduction and proliferation of organisms across ecosystems. The beginning or spread of various diseases. Even the formation of cloud droplets, ice crystals, and precipitation that impact our climate. Droplet’s portfolio of bioaerosol instruments enable:


Real-time, single-particle measurements of atmospheric bacteria, molds, pollen, and other bioaerosols.

Classification of type of material based on size, relative measure of shape, and fluorescent properties

Utility for detection of biological warfare agents, analysis of PBAP in atmospheric science, and selective monitoring and identification of allergens
