What is the most appropriate Method for calculating DPM Concentrations

I'm using Fluent to investigate the aspiration efficiency of a devices as a function of Particle Diameter.
To do this, I created a bunch of DPM injections (one for each size fraction), and I release them from my inflow surface.
To determine my "base concentration", I count the particle tracks at the inlet and divide by the Volume of flow at the inlet.
To determine the "sampled concentration", I count the particle tracks traversing my Inlet cross section, and divide that by the volume flow rate through the Inlet.
To determine my aspiration efficiency, I divide the two numbers.
I fear that this method might be biased by however, as the injection surfaces does not have a uniform mesh. Is it better to create a new bounded surface to create a more uniform release? Is my method for determining concentration estimates appropriate, or do I need to run a coupled model for each injection?
At this moment, my model uses inert water droplets in Air that trap on all solid surfaces.
Any advice and/or guidance is appreciated.
