Aerosol Sensors

Our researchers are developing a new generation of small wearable sensors as part of an aerosol exposure-biology program to more clearly understand personal exposures to tiny airborne particles that trigger asthma attacks. By miniaturizing RTI-developed technologies for measuring aerosol exposure, we are creating tiny devices that can easily be worn by both children and adults.

These technologies will measure exposure to aerosols of specific size classes that are important in inhalation studies. Where possible, our technologies will target chemical and biological aerosol components that have been shown to be stressors for both pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases.
