Abstract:

For the study of the physical properties of infectious and vaccine aerosols it is possible to use the continuous ultramicroscope, based on the principle of calculating particles in an uninterrupted stream of air. It was demonstrated that it was feasible to use it for determining the concentration and particle size composition of a biological aerosol. It was established that using the continuous ultramicroscope it is possible with sufficient accuracy to determine the time for the maximum saturation of the chamber with the aerosol. Corrections were introduced into the calculations made earlier.
