Abstract

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

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. Air monitoring provides useful information about viral prevalence in a population and can 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.

Learn about our solutions for effective air monitoring and see how public health systems around the world have implemented these approaches to monitor COVID-19, as well as other human and animal disease outbreaks.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss the importance of air monitoring for airborne pathogens.

2. Identify Sartorius' solutions for accurate air monitoring.

3. Analyze case studies showing effective implementation.
