Viable Airborne Bacteria Count with Coriolis Compact Air Sampler  

Airborne microorganisms are an increasingly important source of concern in healthcare settings. Indeed, nosocomial infections are a major cause of mortality among hospitalized patients. Several studies have shown that environmental contamination has a strong impact on the nosocomial transmission of bacteria such as S. aureus and M. tuberculosis. For this reason, it is crucial for healthcare facilities to implement decontamination protocols that allow for the control of the level of microorganisms in the air.

Air purifying solutions can help decrease the level of airborne microorganisms in the air and reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

In this study, researchers have used the Coriolis Compact air sampler (Bertin Technologies, Montigny-le-Bretonneux, France) to assess the performance of the GENANO 5250A (Genano, Espoo Finland) in hospital rooms to decrease the number of airborne microorganisms in the air. Airborne viable bacteria count and particle count were measured with the Bactester Fluorescence Microbial Imaging Machine (Bactester, Fukuoka, Japan).
