APTL team was shortlisted at the second “Greece Innovates!” competition. The competition is open to individual researchers, research groups, companies engaged in production and/or research activities in Greece, as well as domestic institutions involved in research.
APTL team participation was represented by Mr. Eleni Papaioannou and includes a “System for preliminary in-vitro health impact assessment of size-selected nanoparticles“. This innovative system of exposing multiple biological samples (e.g. cell lines, tissues) to aerosol flows of size-selected nanoparticle distributions, was built in order to perform a preliminary health impact assessment. It basically consists two devices, connected in series: the Selective Particle Size (SPS) sampler and the Multiculture Exposure Chamber (MEC) of the uniform organotypic multiple biological samples.
