    Dear @Subarna,
    Fantastic idea. Can you share how you collected your samples. If you used sticky tape; I would worry that the little wrinkles in the glue will not allow you to see bacteria. You should use a clean glass slide – and see if you can trap particles in flowing air. Very curious to know how you collected samples.

    Here is one extensive example of collecting air borne bacteria: https://kb.osu.edu/bitstream/handle/1811/4388/V56N05_305.pdf?sequence=1..

    Here are two more posts on air borne sampling:
    Black carbon soot – https://microcosmos.foldscope.com/?p=535

    Air quality – https://microcosmos.foldscope.com/?p=5475

    Keep exploring. I am very excited about your project. With air pollution being a major health risk in India; using foldscope to monitor carbon soot will be very valuable.

    Cheers
    Manu
