Abstract Exposure to airborne biological agents, especially to pathogenic or allergenic microorganisms, is known to cause a wide range of respiratory and other health disorders in occupational and general populations. To improve exposure assessment and control, and to protect the populations and resources potentially exposed to airborne microbial agents, we evaluated a feasibility of a novel bioaerosol sampler capable of achieving very high sample concentration rates. High sample concentration rates allow detecting low microorganism concentrations thus improving our understanding of a relationship between biological exposures and health outcomes.
