The Aim of this study was to assess the mutagenicity of an e-cigarette aerosol, compared to cigarette smoke in tester strains TA98 and TA100 using two different exposure matrices, TPM/eTPM (or ACM – aerosol collected matter) and whole aerosol. A Vitrocell® VC 10 Smoking Robot was used to generate aerosol streams from a traditional reference cigarette (3R4F) and e-cigarette (Vype® ePen).
