Impactor than impinger and filter is more commonly used for bioaerosol sampling because of direct collection without post-collection sample processing. In this study, sampling fungal performance of microbial impactors with different sampling velocities and cut-point diameters was assessed. It was demonstrated that biological recoveries of Penicillium citrinum spores were ob served to be similar to those of two yeast cells, Candida famata var. flareri and Rhodotorula mucilaginosa . In addition, it was indicated that sampling performance of Burkard samplers was relatively better than those of Andersen 1-STG and MAS-100 samplers. Moreover, sampling time was indicated to not significantly influence fungal recoveries of the three evaluated impactors.
