The effect of surface charge, negative and bipolar ionization on the deposition of airborne bacteria

S. Meschke et al. – Journal of Applied Microbiology – Fall 2008

Conclusions: Static charges on fomitic surfaces may attract bacteria resulting in
deposition in excess of that expected by gravitational sedimentation or simple
diffusion. Implementation of bipolar ionization may result in reduction of
bacterial deposition.
