Impact of the exposure to different amounts of DEPM on the cellular viability of the tetraculture at different time-points after exposure. Tetracultures were exposed to 40 ng/cm2 (a), 80 ng/cm2 (b) or 240 ng/cm2 (c) of DEPM and the viability of the tetracultures was evaluated at 6, 24 and 48 h after exposure. DEPM were not significantly affecting the viability of the tetracultures compared to the control cells at any of the evaluated time-points. Tetracultures that without particles served as control (dotted line). Data represents the mean of three independent experiments ± SEM
