Evaluation of SARS-CoV-2 Air Contamination in Hospitals


Experts have used Bertin’s Coriolis air samplers to detect many types of airborne pathogens in hospitals, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses and perform viability studies.

The pandemic of Covid-19 has shown the vulnerability of our healthcare systems when faced with viral infections without a known treatment. Understanding the transmission behavior of SARS-CoV-2 in the air will be a crucial step to managing the current outbreak and design the appropriate prevention and control measures.

In this document, we present how researchers in Imperial College have been evaluating SARS-CoV-2 surface and air contamination in a hospital during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in London, using surface swabs and the Coriolis μ air sampler coupled with RT-qPCR and viral culture.
