for 35 mm petri dishes

The VITROCELL® AMES 4 module system has been specifically designed and engineered to facilitate the research of bacteria direct exposure to airborne substances such as gases, complex mixtures, nanoparticles and fibers.

Base module

This high-quality modules’ casing is made of electropolished stainless steel.

Aerosol exposure top

Special sealing and connection mechanisms guarantee a hermetic connection of the base module with the aerosol exposure top.

The aerosol inlet-stream flows through specially shaped inlets. The stainless steel / VITROGLIDE inlets are specifically designed for aerosols containing nanoparticles. The aerosol exposure top features an in/outlet for heating the water circuit, ensuring corresponding temperatures with the base module. It is made of high-quality anodized aluminum.

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.

Microbalance Sensor – Additional option

A choice of modules equipped with 1 Quartz Crystal Microbalance for dose monitoring is also available.

Petri dishes

The module has been designed for 35 mm Petri dishes.


  • Suitable for Petri dishes (diameter 35 mm)
