Air Sample (Non-Culturable)

A known volume of air is impacted onto the surface of an adhesive which captures the particulate matter present including but not limited to fungal spores, pollen and skin cells. The particulate matter collected can then be identified and enumerated by the laboratory. Examples of non-culturable air samples include the Zefon Air-O-Cell™ and the Allergenco™.
