The beginning of biological investigations of the air was founded in the middle of the past century by Pasteur. Since that time, dozens of various apparatuses and methods for study of airborne microflora have been proposed. The intensive development and perfecting of the methods of investigation were closely connected with definite periods of intensive study of the microflora of atmospheric air, air of living and hospital quarters as well as of artificial bacterial aerosols. The latter are utilized more and more for determination of the effectiveness of various means and methods of disinfecting the air and for the study of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of aerial infections.
