NIST press release on standards for spore recovery from indoor surfaces; note paper not #OpenAccess #microBEnet

A recent press release from NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) is of some interest:NIST Seeks Improved Recovery of Samples from Biohazard Events.  In the press release they discuss a new paper in (AEM) Applied and Environmental Microbiology from NIST: Parameters Affecting Spore Recovery from Wipes Used in Biological Surface Sampling.

Alas, the paper from NIST is not OpenAccess an even UCDavis does not have a subscription to AEM.  So I cannot read the paper.  The topic is interesting: developing standards for surface sampling of microbes.  Too bad NIST apparently is not pushing their people to publish in a fully OpenAccess manner.
