More about Essentials

Aerosol exposure top

Exchangeable aerosol inlets ensure a versatile use of exposure module. The top and base modules incorporate integrated electrical heating.

Controlled inlet flow

VITROCELL® exposure systems have been specifically designed and engineered to give researchers the possibility of directly exposing mammalian cells or tissue at the air/liquid interface. Thus, all cell types cultivated on microporous membranes can be used. This approach allows for more credible and authentic results than by submerged exposure due to a closer replication of the human physiology.
