A bioaerosol collection device (BCD) includes a housing with a first opening, a second opening, and a plate positioned between the first opening and the second opening. When a vacuum is applied to the second opening, the resulting air flow through the BCD causes bioaerosols to collect on a medium positioned on a surface of the plate. The collected bioaerosols are incubated and the resulting bacterial colonies can then be counted to determine a level of bioaerosol contamination in the air.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A bioaerosol collection device (BCD) comprising:a housing having an interior cavity, a first opening located at one part of the interior cavity, and a second opening located at another part of the interior cavity, wherein the second opening is connectable to a vacuum device which produces an air flow which moves into the first opening, through the interior cavity, and out the second opening,wherein the interior cavity supports a plate holding a medium for collecting bioaerosols, the plate being supported within the interior ca...
