Testing of Spore Aerosol Generator

Swisens Poleno with Spores Aerosol Generator

The first prototype of the Spore Aerosol Generator applies a horizontal airflow onto fungal cultures. Consequently, the generation of bioaerosols is possible in a controllable and easy manner. This aerosolization setup was described in the mentioned publication and allows for different operation modes by changing the air velocity, as stated by the authors. With low air velocities applied to the fungal cultures, aerosolization of fungal fragments with a size below 1 µm is possible.
