For cell culture exposure to smallest ­quantities of dry powders

PowderX allows for aerosolisation of small quantities of dry powders (1-100 mg) and particle deposition on cells cultured on 12- or 24-well sized inserts.

The system features biological barrier integration and continuous sampling from the basolateral compartment.

Working Principle

  • Powder sample is placed in quick-lock loading system.
  • Expansion chamber and base module are tightly sealed by touchscreen operation.
  • Powder sample is aerosolized under high pressure to break up agglomerates for homogeneous dispersion in the expansion chamber.
  • Powder sample settles on cell cultures.
