Advanced in vitro exposure systems.

VITROCELL® Exposure Systems for Inhalation Toxicology

When you require a specific solution for your in vitro studies in the field of inhalation toxicology, talk to us with confidence. We have over a decade of experience in designing, producing and installing customized exposure systems specifically for your research needs.

VITROCELL® equipment offers you flexible solutions using biological systems for the accurate analysis of these airborne substances:

  • Gases
  • Complex mixtures
  • Nanoparticles
  • Fibers

Application Areas

  • Conventional exhausts
  • 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, can be observed in modules specifically designed for direct contact between cells and components of the test atmosphere at the air/liquid interface.

Introduction Inhalation toxicology

Condensed information on application areas and testing at the air/liquid interface using VITROCELL® systems.

Exposure Systems

Exposure Systems

The exposure modules for the relevant cell culture insert sizes and Petri dishes are the core part of every VITROCELL® installation. The Cloud System and Automated Exposure Station are ready-to-test solutions.

Aerosol & Gas Supply

Aerosol & Gas Supply

This section explains the different possibilities of dose supply. VITROCELL® aerosol and gas supply equipment is designed for consistent and reproducible delivery of the test substances.

Smoking Machines

Smoking Machines

Reliable whole and side stream smoke generation, also well suited for e-cigarettes.

Dilution

Dilution

Dilution of the test aerosol or gas is required to establish a dose-response relationship. VITROCELL® Dynamic Dilution Systems dilute the test atmosphere at freely definable ratios.

Humidification Systems

Humidification Systems

Humidification of the test substances and dilution air is recommended for longer term exposures and 3 D mammalian cell systems. VITROCELL® offers a set of solutions.

Rack Systems & Carts

Rack Systems & Carts

For user-friendly and easy handling. All components such as modules, dilution and distributions systems, flow calibration valves have their dedicated place on VITROCELL® Racks and Carts.

Dose Monitoring

Dose Monitoring

Monitoring of the dose delivered to cells or bacteria is a key requirement. The dose can be measured by VITROCELL® online gas analyzing equipment, photometers or microbalance sensors.
