Table 1 Deposition efficiencies obtained for Ag20, Ag200 and AgNWs using the Vitrocell™Cloud System

From: In vitro exposure of a 3D-tetraculture representative for the alveolar barrier at the air-liquid interface to silver particles and nanowires

  Concentration of the sprayed suspension (μg/mL) Deposition efficiency (%) Expected concentration (μg/cm2) Measured concentration (μg/cm2)
Ag20 50 54 0.05 0.054
500 68 0.5 0.68
5000 74 5 7.4
Ag200 50 50 0.05 0.05
500 47 0.5 0.47
5000 82 5 8.2
AgNWs 50 40 0.05 0.04
500 57 0.5 0.57
5000 60 5 6.0
