The flexiVent is widely regarded as the gold standard for in vivo lung function measurements. It goes beyond traditional resistance and compliance measurements, and captures crucial details about the mechanical properties of conducting airways, terminal airways and parenchyma.
The flexiVent achieves the highest sensitivity and reproducibility by precisely controlling experimental conditions.
The inExpose is designed to operate under a standard fume hood, and distinguishes itself by its compact size and high level of integration. Its modularity and integration permits both nose-only and/or whole body exposure of rodents, as well as automated generation of cigarette smoke and aerosols. The small form factor reduces direct and indirect costs, and low internal volumes also minimize unintended dilution of precious compounds.
Plethysmography is a standard method for studying pulmonary function in conscious, spontaneously breathing laboratory subjects. The barometric plethysmography technique measures flow and pressure changes that occur while the subject is breathing, before and after exposure to a drug or other challenges. It is easily adapted to various subject sizes and species, and is often used for longitudinal studies where the subjects are studied for multiple hours on successive experiment days.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine ITEM and SCIREQ Scientific Respiratory Equipment Inc. are pleased to announce their collaboration for the development and commercialization of the expoCube platform. The expoCube is a precision aerosol exposure system for pulmonary research. It permits highly accurate and reproducible deposition of particles from inhalable aerosols onto cells and tissues from the lungs.
