Precision Digital Dispensing of Patterned Picoliter Quantities of Test Material onto Apical Surfaces of Human 3D-Reconstructed Airway Tissues

March 30, 2017

There is an increasing need for researchers to understand the dynamic aspects of inhaled tobacco product exposure. Available 3D human reconstructed airway tissues (RHuA) provide researchers with a more physiological platform that offers apical and basal compartments for flexibility in modelling relevant exposures. We have tested the Tecan D300 digital dispenser as potential technical solution to deliver precise amounts of very small vehicle droplets to coat the apical surface of an available RHuA.
