The problem of detecting and counting aerosolized bacteria has been approached in several ways. One of the simplest methods is to collect a sample and examine it microscopically, using a standard bacteriological stain. The automation of such a device requires a processing system to collect and stain the sample and a scanner to recognize the stained organism against a background of unstained particles. The instrument reported here differs from previously described devices for scanning microscopic fields in that instead of responding to particle size or total numbers it responds to color.
