 Scope of Activities: Systems for Inhalation Toxicology and Percutaneous Penetration

 In Vitro Cultivation and Exposure Systems for Inhalation Toxicology

We offer customers from industry and research institutes new culture and exposure systems for in vitro studies of gases or complex mixtures. The VITROCELL® modules offer new possibilities for the characterization of the effects of airborne substances such as:


> Gases 
> Complex mixtures
> Nano particles
> Fibres

Application Areas
- Combustion exhaust
- Cosmetics
- Household chemicals 
- Indoor / outdoor air analysis
- Industrial chemicals
- Pesticides
- Pharmaceuticals
- Tobacco smoke (whole smoke and gas phase)

Direct Exposure Technology 
at the Air / Liquid Interface

Primary cultures and cell lines, e.g. from the respiratory tract, are treated in modules specially designed for direct contact between cells and components of the test atmosphere at the air/liquid interface. 

The advantages:

- No loss
- No solution / no dissolution
- No reaction of constituents with medium

The result: High sensitivity of the system

 In Vitro Exposure Sytems for Tissue / Percutaneous Penetration
 VITROCELL® Skin Exposure Systems
 The VITROCELL® Skin modules are unique alternatives to Franz Cells. 
 They are suitable for the exposure of tissue to liquids and other compounds 
 as well as for the analysis of volatiles. 
 The modules are available in various sizes and configurations. It is in combination
 with the VITROCELL® Skin Autosampler a powerful analysis tool.
