Studies addressing the potential risks associated with electronic cigarette (e-cig) usage are urgently needed, given their rising use and popularity, especially in youth. Coordinated efforts are required to tackle the challenge of addressing key scientific questions, as there is a diversity of devices and e-liquid formulations that exists, as well as various ways in which the aerosol can be generated.
The recent publication by Noël et al. 1, entitled Generation of Electronic Cigarette Aerosol by a Third-Generation Machine-Vaping Device: Application to Toxicological Studies, is a noteworthy example to accelerate and harmonize e-cig research findings through the use of reproducible exposure environments.
SCIREQ is proud to be associated with this work, involving the inExpose system for the generation of programmable automated e-cig aerosol profiles.
We invite you to read the paper and watch its accompanying video, as well as to contact one of our application specialists to see how the system can be configured to address your scientific e-cig related questions.
