The Cloud Alpha Max combines highly efficient testing with ease of use. The development is based on the well-known and frequently published Vitrocell Cloud formats (6-, 12-, 24- and 96-well). It’s functionality enables fully automated processes with an all-in-one control unit. The solution makes physiologically relevant experiments at the air/liquid interface easy.

The Cloud Alpha Max is suitable for nebulization of solutions and suspensions using only 30 microliter of product on 6-, 12- and 24-well sized cell culture inserts. Possible fields of application are virus research, screening of inhaled drugs and toxicity testing of inhaled substances such as chemicals or nanoparticles. Key Features include an integrated controller for aerosol generators, an optionally integrated microbalance controller, defined experiment recipes and the possibility to automate the experiment by nebulization time or by user-defined volume. Additionally, the unit features an output rate database for nebulizers and a heating system.
