Testing for Microbial Contamination in Ambient Air 
 
Took Place:
Friday, December 11, 2020. 
 
Presenter:
Maria Sandoval, Lab Director, Trace Analytics LLC
 
Webinar Overview:
In this webinar, we will discuss how ambient air becomes contaminated with microorganisms and the dangers that they pose to food and beverage products. Maria Sandoval, Trace Analytics' lab director and microbiologist will explain how best to sample ambient air and what options provide both qualitative and quantitative data. She will detail how chromogenic identification can further help food and beverage manufacturers to determine whether or not their food products are at risk for dangerous bacteria like Listeria and Salmonella.
