Viable bioaerosol and particulate data from four sites representing different levels of endotoxin exposure in south east England, 2016-2018

The dataset was collected between 2016-2018. A range of different environments were sampled including urban and rural sites in the South East of England, a compost facility in the East of England and a chicken farm in the South East of England. At each site viable bioaerosols (total bacteria, gram negative bacteria and fungi), endotoxin and particulates were measured.

Provenance & quality

The dataset was generated according to accepted protocols as detailed in the supporting documentation. Pumps for the Andersen samplers were tested before each sampling day using inline flow meters. The Osiris particulate counter is serviced and recalibrated yearly as advised by the manufacturer. All equipment and filters for endotoxin analysis were depyrogenated before use. Controls included analysing unexposed filters and filters that were placed on the Andersen without the pumps running to check for contamination.
