Air filtration monitors are becoming increasingly used in public facilities to monitor the quality of circulating air and for the detection of microbial elements. Collection of bacteria and mold can be genetically analyzed to identify species to the strain level for epidemiological analyses
FTA Technology can be used for the collection of parasitic organisms and DNA isolation for rapid microbial identification.
Protein analysis is also used for analysis of microbial organisms. Protein blotting membranes are an integral part of detection by immunological means. Protein Microarrays are suitable for a the analysis of multiple samples for high throughput protein analysis.
