Are you running a project for new inhalation drugs or studying airborne pollutants? We offer complete solutions with high quality and versatile expertise in inhalation exposure so that you as a customer will receive the best service. We perform studies on rats and mice and are GLP compliant for toxicological studies.
For substances that are to be administered via inhalation:
The exposure system enables the nebulization of liquids or the administration of dry powder aerosols. This can be performed in unanaesthetised animals, up to 60 animals per tower simultaneously, in four separate towers.

The PreciseInhale® system can be used to administer substances either to intratracheally intubated animals under anesthesia, or to unanaesthetised or sedated animals by nose-only. The exposure system enables use of both nebulization of liquids or dry powder aerosols of test substances.
In accordance with guidelines, eg OECD TG412, we perform:
