The Karlsruhe Exposure System is a lab scale measurement system for the air-liquid interface exposure of human lung cell cultures towards air borne nanoparticles under well defined conditions.

 

Background
Numerical simulations by Kiesewetter et al. show: also in 15 years the European limits for PM10 immissions will not be complied.
figure: predicted PM10 concentrations in 2030
→New assessment methods for biological responses of immissions are required.
