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.
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. The VITROCELL® Cloud SEQ represents another evolution of the well-known Cloud system. Keeping functional process parameters according to established devices like the VITROCELL® Cloud 6, 12 or 24 it enhances these devices even further. It offers the possibility to sequentially expose rows of inserts to create dose-response effects via multiple exposures in one experiment. The concentration of nebulized liquid is kept at the same level for each nebulisation and the cell cultures under comparable conditions.
