Researchers at Purdue University have developed a small device which can quantify bacteria in bioaerosols. Unlike current aerosol bacteria detection methods which required an outside lab for analysis, this device can rapidly analyze samples. It is a wearable device that can be easily fitted onto the user. A removable sample collection container can be assayed with a conventional biocounter via ATP bioluminescence.

-Quantifies bacteria in aerosol particles
-Rapid results

Potential Applications:
-Monitoring airborne bacteria levels
-Establishment of worker safety standards
