  • Abstract:
    This document specifies general requirements for the evaluation of volumetric bioaerosol samplers in order to assess workplace exposure and their physical and biological performance. This document describes the procedures for the development of volumetric bioaerosol samplers as well as their properties and validation. This document provides a description of a test facility and selection criteria for microbial strains that can be used to assess their biological performance. This document addresses requirements to manufacturers and developers of volumetric bioaerosol samplers as well as to test facilities with the equipment and skills to carry out the performance measurements of these samplers (see Annex D for application guidance). This document is not intended for operators who use volumetric bioaerosol samplers to carry out exposure measurements for workers at occupational settings. This document is not applicable for clean room measurements other than for occupational safety.
