    Exposure to micro-organisms can be measured by different methods.

    Traditionally, viable methods and light microscopy have been used for detection of micro-organisms.

    Most viable methods measure micro-organisms that are able to grow in culture, and these methods are also common for the identification of micro-organisms.

    More recently, non-viable methods have been developed for the measurement of bioaerosol components originating from micro-organisms that are based on microscopic techniques, bioassays, immunoassays and chemical methods.

    These methods are important for the assessment of exposure to bioaerosols in work environments as non-infectious micro-organisms and microbial components may cause allergic and toxic reactions independent of viability.

    It is not clear to what extent micro-organisms should be identified because exposure-response data are limited and many different micro-organisms and microbial components may cause similar health effects.

    Viable methods have also been used in indoor environments for the detection of specific organisms as markers of indoor growth of micro-organisms.

    At present, the validity of measurement methods can only be assessed by comparative laboratory and field studies because standard materials of microbial bioaerosol components are not available.

    Systematic errors may occur especially when results obtained by different methods are compared. (...)

Fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019

Madame, Monsieur, utilisateurs du site BDSP et de ses services,

Nous avons le regret de vous informer de la fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019.

Pendant une période de transition de six mois, du 1er janvier au 30 juin 2019, le site et ses services resteront accessibles mais ne seront plus alimentés, ni mis à jour.

Plus précisément, concernant le service "Offres d'emploi", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 18 décembre 2018.

Concernant le service "Annonces de colloques", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 30 novembre 2018.

Nous vous informerons régulièrement sur le devenir des services (archivage ouvert, reprise, arrêt) et nous vous proposerons des réorientations vers des services similaires.
