Air Liquid Interface
Exploring ALI Exposures: From Cell Lines to Endpoints

Traditional submerged cell culture techniques have well-known limitations for aerosol exposure studies; for instance, the impact of exposure dilution within the media and the poor solubility/sedimentation of some exposure particles1. Air liquid interface (ALI) cultures are a technique whereby cells are grown on a microporous membrane insert, immersed in a media-containing well.

Experimental Biology 2022

At this year’s annual meeting, SCIREQ focused our discussions around our plethysmography system – the vivoFlow – which permits a continuous, non-invasive assessment of breathing patterns in conscious subjects, and allows for automated exposure to gas challenges, as well as aerosol delivery, wired and vascular access.

Visualizing Lung Physiology in Response to Chemical and Mechanical Assaults

Acute lung injury (ALI) arises from factors as diverse as endotoxin exposure, chemical assault, acute particulate exposures or mechanical impacts, as seen in ventilator induced lung injury (VILI). ALI and VILI studies push the understanding of both fundamental breathing mechanics and general lung physiology to describe how damage occurs in the hopes of mitigating of damage.

Longitudinal Studies with SCIREQ Systems

Longitudinal studies offer a wealth of information, particularly for diseases progression or development studies. In addition, smaller sample sizes are possible to accumulate significant data, as subject assessment is possible at multiple time points.
