Microbial Air Monitoring Facilitates Disease Surveillance and Outbreak Response

SARS-CoV-2 spreads through airborne transmission. Aerosols containing live virus are dispersed when an infected person exhales and can accumulate indoors, putting others at risk.

Microbial air monitoring is one of the essential pillars of disease surveillance and management. Routine air sampling in crowded indoor spaces such as airports, hospitals, schools, malls and offices serves as an early warning mechanism, not just for SARS-CoV-2, but also other airborne pathogens. Microbial air monitoring provides useful information about viral prevalence in a population. Air monitoring can also be used as an alternative screening tool when mass diagnostic testing is not feasible. Early identification of pathogens and variants of concern allows for timely implementation of mitigation strategies and informs vaccine development.

Join this webinar to learn about the solutions for effective air monitoring. The featured speaker will also discuss how public health systems around the world have implemented these approaches to monitor COVID-19, as well as other human and animal disease outbreaks.
