SUMMARY: The viability of microbial populations recovered from aerosols was determined by a slide culture technique and/or the radioactively labelled antibody method and the results were compared with those obtained by the more widely used var. spore tracer technique. With MRE 162, results with the three methods were in good agreement. Slide culture gave inaccurate results with live vaccine strain (LVS) and MRE 160. Results with the spore tracer and radio-antibody methods in conjunction with determinations of viable numbers were in fair agreement when MRE 160 and coliphage T 7 were tested.
