Online course
Microbic Infestation of Objects of Art and Cultural Heritage
by Prof. Dr. Karin Petersen und Barbara Hentschel M.A.

The focal point of this course is presenting different methods of
detecting and analyzing microorganisms encountered in objects of
cultural heritage. The user is introduced to simple analyzing
techniques as well as modern and specific approaches. The different
ways of removing samples and of nondestructive testing are described
explaining which results obtained using these techniques are of
significance for the conservator. Moreover, one module deals with
the principles and fundamentals of a discipline, thus enabling a
user without any background in the field to gain access to the
contents of the course.

During the term of the course, a diploma conservator of the
Hornemann Institute is available to all participants via e-mail or
forum. Course oversight is provided by Prof. Dr. Karin Petersen.
