New high-through-put bioaerosol enricher and identifier system is reported. Enrichment is realized by aerodynamic deflection of particles have the UV-laser-induced-fluorescence spectra as biomaterials in question. Identification of deflected aerosols is achieved with fluorescent antibody assay within microfluidic cells.
