Successful completion of the first joint aeroHEALTH campaign

Atmospheric aging of primary aerosols and subsequent cell exposure using air-liquid interface

 

After 5 months of intense work, aeroHEALTH proudly announce the successful completion of the first joint measurement campaign. In this campaign, the biological effect of soot particles mixed with secondary aerosol from the simulated atmospheric aging of representative biogenic (β-pinene) and anthropogenic volatile organic compounds (naphthalene) was investigated in mono- and co-culture cell models at the air-liquid-interface. The cell exposures were flanked by a broad range of instruments for physical and chemical aerosol characterization, which aeroHEALTH seeks to link to the observed biological effects.
