  What do we do
Outdoor aerobiological monitoring of pollen and fungal spores
Pollens bulletin and calendar

Monitoring of meteorological parameters
 (Work in progress)

Indoor aerobiological monitoring
Controlled contamination healthcare environments:
Classification, microbiological sampling of air (active and passive) and surfaces, particulate sampling of air
Conservation environments of cultural heritage:
Microbiological sampling of air (active and passive) of surfaces, particulate sampling of air
Living and working environments:
Microbiological sampling of air (active and passive) of surfaces, particulate sampling of air

Microclimate monitoring
  Main lines of research

 Standardization of biological sampling methods of air and surfaces (bacteria, fungi and viruses)
 Turbulent flow or unidirectional flow ventilation systems and air contamination in the operating room
Pollen concentrations and allergenic potency
 Valutazione delle variazioni delle stagionalità pollinica come indicatore di cambiamenti climatici
 Analysis of the spread of allergenic pollen from non-native weeds
