Air, surfaces and water systems must be carefully monitored to detect the presence of potentially pathogenic organisms as well as to detect the development of harmful micro-organisms.
During their 13 years of experience within the MIR Station activities, and previous manned missions (i.e. Salyut), our Russian colleagues have valuable information on this subject.
It was the aim of this study to perform a general survey of the existing knowledge.
