Tutorial C:

Aerosol inhalation and exposure
Wolfgang G. Kreyling and Otmar Schmid
Abstract:
The tutorial will provide an overview on current in vitro cell exposure facilities and aerosol inhalation systems for humans and experimental animals including critical issues to be noticed. Specifically the relevance of appropriate particle dosing and deposition probabilities in the human respiratory tract will be addressed. At the end the attendant will have gained a deeper understanding of the power and limits of studies on aerosol inhalation and exposure.
