The paper presents a preliminary research effort to develop a methodology for the measurement of non-viable biologically based particulate matter (PM), analyzing for mold, dust mite, and ragweed antigens and endotoxins. Using a comparison of analytical methods, the research objectives include: (1) quantifying the relationship between outdoor and indoor levels of bioaerosols, adn (2) determining the fraction of ambient and indoor PM that is biological.
