To interpret the results from viable air sampling, the user should understand the dynamics of sampling and collection of particles on the collection medium. Results of 0 CFU per cubic meter in manned cleanrooms could indicate that the sampling process, sampling location or the collection media, incubation temperature and time have not been optimized. It is important to be aware of the limitations of each sampling method. Results from one sampling method must not be compared with results obtained by another method without careful investigation. To improve the evaluation of controlled environments based on achieved results, the air sampler used has to be specified. An air sampler should be selected based upon a thorough evaluation of the characteristics of the sampler, the sampling conditions and sampling requirements.
