How can I measure air contamination ?
This is sometimes called aerocontamination. Air contamination is defined by the amount of particles in the air, whether inert (dust) or viable (alive = micro-organisms).
In the food industry, it is of utmost importance to monitor the amount of micro-organisms (viable particle rate) to prevent aerial contamination of products. Open Petri dishes are used for this monitoring: this sedimentation method is used to view the viable particles that land on a surface.
LCB food safety offers an air sampling device (AIR TEST®) enabling you to :
perform a quantitative and qualitative analysis of your production environment,
monitor your environment for the data obtained (setting thresholds),
use Aerial Surface Disinfection solutions to obtain a microbiological balance enabling you to ensure the sanitary quality of your products.
