In this study, a systematical survey on the indoor airborne fungi was
carried out for one year in Manisa. Fungal samples were collected in each
month with Merck MAS100 air sampler from four sampling sites. Fungal concentrations
were reported as colony forming units per cubic meter of air using the
MAS100 conversion unit table. Results showed that the average fungal concentration
is 320 colony forming units cfu m-3. Twenty one species belonging
to 7 genera were identified according to their microscopic, macromorphological
properties and through references. Penicillium, with the most abundant
genera, which comprised more than 38 of the total isolated fungal species.
Cladosporium were the most dominant fungal group, followed by Penicillium,
Aspergillus and Alternaria.
