Microrganism stress

Effect of Impact stress on microbial recovery on an agar surface of an active air sampler. Microbial stress due to impaction of microorganisms onto an agar collection surface is dif cult to experimentally demonstrate. Recovery and injury due to collection depends not only on the magnitude of the impaction velocity, but also on the degree to which the microorganisms may be embedded in the collection medium.
