    Concentrated animal-feeding operations (CAFOs) are considered a source of airborne human pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes. Although bacterial abundance and diversity have been well studied, limited information on the size distribution of bioaerosols has prevented a clear understanding of the health effects of exposure to bioaerosols from by: Rapid Microbiological Methods. Welcome to the most comprehensive online resource for rapid microbiology technologies, regulatory policy, validation strategies, return on investment, industry news, current trends and expert training and consulting.

    Sanitation | June/July Airborne Contamination: A Microbiologist’s Perspective. By Jeffrey L. Kornacki, Ph.D. The role of airborne contamination of processed foods is controversial and fraught with contradictory opinions.[1,2} Some feel that airborne contamination of foods is of great public health significance, whereas others feel it is of little importance. A study was undertaken to assess the levels of airborne contamination in a changing room during use. To assess this, a changing room was examined under different conditions: at-rest; occupied (with different numbers of personnel); and post-use. For the assessment, a novel rapid microbiological method was used.

The single most comprehensive resource for environmental microbiology Environmental microbiology, the study of the roles that microbes play in all planetary environments, is one of the most important areas of scientific research.

The Manual of Environmental Microbiology, Fourth Edition, provides comprehensive coverage of this critical and growing field. Concentrations of total airborne microbes at various air quality levels.

The AQI value of PM was used to characterize air quality levels in this study. Six air quality levels were used for the evaluation: excellent (0−50), good (51−), lightly polluted (−), moderate polluted (−), heavily polluted (−), and Cited by: Airborne microbes can move directly, from person to person through respiration, ingestion, and dermal contact or indirectly, from waste handling and loading of sewage, biosolids or animal wastes (Earth Materials and Health, pg).

Also, fungal spores released by soil fungi into the wind can be a natural mechanism of transportation. Therefore a new era in medical microbiology is demanding a rapid transition from current procedures to high throughput analytical systems for the diagnosis of microbial pathogens.

Airborne fungal spores are also important agents of plant disease, and the means for dissemination of many common saprotrophic (saprophytic) fungi.

Microbial diversity refers unequivocally to biological diversity at three levels: within species (genetic), species number (species) and community.
