For 3 Petri dishes (35 mm size)
The VITROCELL® SC 3 module system has been specifically designed and engineered to facilitate the research of suspension cells direct exposure to airborne substances such as gases, complex mixtures, nanoparticles and fibers. It has a unique magnetic stirring capability.
Normally two modules are required: one module for exposure to the substances and a second module for clean air control. The capacity can be easily increased by adding more modules. Each module can receive a different dose concentration, so that a complete dose / response profile can be obtained in one experiment. The suspension cells are directly exposed in stirred media using controlled flow rates of the aerosol. After exposure, the cultures are further processed.
Special sealing and connection mechanisms guarantee a hermetic connection of the base module with the aerosol exposure top.
The inlets are available in stainless steel or stainless steel with unique VITROGLIDE surface treatment for lowest adhesion results. The aerosol inlets are connected to the aerosol generation / dilution system and their respective outlets to the vacuum pump.
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.
