Application Note: Rapid Quantification of Viable Fungi in Hospital Environments using solid-phase cytometry
19 November 2017

Monitoring enviromental fungal contamination in hospitals is paramount for outbreak investigations or during building construction and renovation work. This application note assesses Solid-Phase Cytometry systems and Coriolis µ air sampling against conventional culture methods, revealing a rapid monitoring response and increased detection level that could be used for early warning systems in hospitals to assess risk of infection in wards with immunosuppressed patients.
