This system is specifically designed for dose-controlled and uniform deposition of dry powder aerosols on cells cultured at the air/liquid interface.
The dry powder can be applied from all commercially available inhalers or via direct dosing.
A typical powder quantity for exposure is 20 mg per experiment.
Duration for a single experiment lasts approx. 20 minutes. The powder is transported via negative pressure from the inhaler or direct dosing device to 4 independent sedimentation tubes. After these are filled, the 4 cell culture insert compartments are moved under the sedimentation tubes for exposure. The entire process is sequenced automatically by editing the VITROCELL® Powder Chamber Controller.
