Determination of the number of individual bacterial cells in aerosol particles with the UVAPS

Agranovski, Victoria & Ristovski, Zoran (2005) Determination of the number of individual bacterial cells in aerosol particles with the UVAPS. In European Aerosol Conference 2005, 28 August-2 September, Ghent, Belgium.


Intensity of the fluorescent signals detected by the UVAPS was found to be directly proportional to the amount of the fluorophores in the airborne particles, which indicates that the UVAPS data can be used to estimate the number of individual microorganisms in the particles. This study further explored a capability of the UVAPS to provide data on the concentration of airborne bacterial cells, in addition to the concentration of airborne bacterial particles.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
