Air Hygiene

Determining the count of airborne bacteria forms an integral part of hygiene in various industrial sectors, such as the food industry, the pharmacological sector and the medical device industry. Similarly, certain airborne bacteria levels must not be exceeded in offices and housing. These levels can be checked by means of air quality measurements.

ifp offers accredited sampling and analysis of the microbiological status of the room or process air using various techniques.

  • Microbial count of airborne microorganisms based on sedimentation
  • Microbial count of airborne microorganisms based on impacting
  • Airborne particle measurement using scattered light detection
