This system is specifically designed for dose-controlled and spatially uniform deposition of liquid aerosols on cells cultured at the air/liquid interface. The aerosol is applied during a short time of approx. 3 minutes. The setup is designed for 6, 12 and 24-well sized inserts. The cultivation module is made of electropolished stainless steel. It can be heated by water circuit with an optional water bath.
The VITROCELL® Cloud ALI Starter Kit can be used for aerosols generated from liquids and suspensions.
Possible fields of application are screening for inhaled drugs and toxicity testing of inhaled substances including nanoparticle suspensions. There is a choice among 4 options of Aeroneb® nebulizers:
- 4.0 – 6.0 µm
- 2.5 – 6.0 µm
- 2.5 – 4.0 µm
- 10 µm (special version)
The Cloud aerosol chamber is made of Polycarbonate.
