Relationship Between Surface Electrostatic Potential and Deposition of Airborne Bacteria

Abstract

Recent work has demonstrated that airborne bacteria can carry high net charges which may influence their deposition onto surfaces. This paper investigated the relationship between surface electric potential relative to ground and the deposition rate of airborne bacteria. Nutrient-agar settle plates were charged to potentials of +/-5, +/- 2.5, and 0 kV and… (More)
