Abstract

Indoor exposure to bioaerosols is an important factor influencing human health. Among different bioaerosol sources indoors, humans have emerged as prominent ones. However, we know little about how different personal and indoor environmental conditions influence human emissions of biological particles.
In this study, we characterized the human emissions of fluorescent biological aerosol particles (FBAPs) by means of the Waveband Integrated Bioaerosol Sensor (WIBS) capable of measuring size-specific bioaerosols with high time resolution. In a well-controlled ventilated climate chamber occupied with human participants, we investigated the influence of clothing, age, level of ozone, air temperature and relative humidity on coarse (1-10 μm) FBAP emissions from humans.
