What could be the APC limits for environmental swabs? (floor, walls, air ducts)

Doug: 

 

I haven't seen any official guidelines for APC, typically I've seen enterobacter, listeria, or salmonella used as indicators for environmental swabs.  ACP won't tell you too much, I think, because bacteria are everywhere - naturally.  Choose a relevant indicator organism, would be my recommendation.
