    Characterization of whole mainstream smoke/aerosol delivery within the Vitrocell® Ames 48 high throughput exposure module using different tobacco product types

    LEVERETTE R.(1); KEYSER B.(1); SEYMOUR A.(2); HOLLINGS M.(2)
    (1) RAI Services Company, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, Winston-Salem, NC, U.S.A.; (2) Covance Laboratories Ltd, Otley Road, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, U.K.
    The preferred means of assessing combustible or other aerosol-generating tobacco products in vitro is by direct exposure of cell cultures to freshly generated whole mainstream smoke/aerosols. This approach eliminates the fractionation of...
