Surrogate quantitation of bioaerosols.


Our ability to characterize infectious aerosol generation and exposure may be enhanced by the use of non-culture analysis of appropriate surrogates. Traditionally, bioaerosol exposure has focused on measuring the viable culturable fraction. However, viable sampling may underestimate quantitation of an infectious aerosol. This work is designed to develop criteria for the use of surrogate markers of infectious aerosols and explore their application.
