Single Droplet Sedimenation Systems are specifically designed for dose-controlled and spatially uniform deposition of liquid aerosols on cells. Test substances are chemicals or particles brought into suspension with e.g. PBS.
The aerosol is applied for a short time of approx. 3 – 6 minutes.
This method is well suited for scarce and expensive materials, such as new drug candidates or particle samples from the environment.
Nebulization volumes range from 15 – 300 µl. Aerosolization is performed directy into the cell culture exposure chamber. Aerosolization can be repeated several times to obtain a dose-response profile.
