Advanced in vitro exposure systems.

VITROCELL® Cloud PowerVent
Evacuation of residual gaseous compounds

VITROCELL® Cloud PowerVent
  • 1 Locking mechanism for airtight sealing
  • 2 Exposure top
  • 3 Nebulizer
  • 4 Evacuation tubing
  • 5 Liquid trap
  • 6 Valve
  • 7 To vacuum pump

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 for a short time of approx. 3 – 4 minutes.

VITROCELL® Cloud System Phase 1
Phase 1 - Emission of Cloud
VITROCELL® Cloud System Phase 2
Phase 2 - Homogeneous Mixing
VITROCELL® Cloud System Phase 3
Phase 3 - Gravitational Settling

The VITROCELL® Cloud 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.

Adaptors for 12- and 24-well sized inserts included

6-well inserts
Also available as VITROCELL® Cloud 6 PowerVent version
12-well inserts
Also available as VITROCELL® Cloud 12 PowerVent version
24-well inserts
Also available as VITROCELL® Cloud 24 PowerVent version
