This document specifies the procedure to sample continuously and analyse the concentration of airborne pollen grains and fungal spores in ambient air using the volumetric Hirst type sampler. This document describes both the sampling and the analysis procedures for the purpose of allergy networks. Other specifications may be required. A synergy exists between pollen and fungal spores' exposition and air pollution which requests some specific and complementary information in order to decrease the risk of health impact.
