Tenacity of mycobacterium-containing aerosols. (a) Distribution of aerodynamic diameters of aerosols generated by jet nebulization from either buffer (PBS) or mycobacterial suspensions in PBS in ACD air at different time points after aerosol generation (n = 3). (b) Settling time of jet-nebulized aerosols vs ultrawave-nebulized aerosols (n = 3, **p > 0.001, ***p > 0.0001). (c) CFU of airborne mycobacteria collected from the different levels of an Andersen impinger at the starting time point of jet nebulization and 30 min later (n = 3, *p > 0.01, **p > 0.001).
