The performance and improvements of an aerosol mass spectrometer for the real time analysis of bioaerosol particles is described. Biological particles are pre-selected by fluorescence detection and are then subject to mass spectrometry. The interference with soot particles is found to be minor. Overall, the capability of the method is demonstrated and discussed in detail.
