Paper Abstract

The BioBadge is a biological dosimeter product based on a personal collection device developed by MesoSystems Technology. Designed to be worn by individuals in potentially biologically hazardous environments, the BioBadge allows for real-time collection, concentration, and analysis of biological agents present in the air. It provides a measure of the wearer’s exposure, providing a means for determining the characteristic and extent of human health threat. In this article, the basic technology that comprises the BioBadge is discussed. Experimental results are presented which explore the performance of this technology. Also included is a simple example to illustrate the use of the wearable sampler.
