Paper Abstract

This paper reports on an investigation into optimal excitation and emission wavelengths for bioaerosol detection. Excitation/Emission Matrix (EEM) fluorescence data were gathered for a variety of materials, including biowarfare (BW) simulants, cell constituents, growth media and known interferents. These data were used to investigate multi-wavelength discrimination algorithms using pattern classification techniques. The results suggest that using two excitation wavelengths and narrower emission bands can improve discrimination between BW agents and interferents.
