Are e-cigarettes safe?

"E-cigarettes have become a billion dollar industry, with one in five North Americans trying the product1". However, the question of how safe the battery operated devices are still remains unanswered even a decade after the product entered the market. The main reason for that is that there is insufficient research available to conclusively determine its long term safety on the user and environment. That situation could however change since researchers can now effectively and reproducibly study the impacts of e-cigarettes using the inExpose system.

inExpose Application

E-cigarettes of various dimensions can easily be integrated to the inExpose system to generate and deliver an unparalleled number of reproducible exposure profiles applicable to in vitro as well as in vivo studies. We invite you to watch the video below that showcases, from generation to delivery site, an example of how exposure to e-cigarette mist could be experimentally conducted.

The inExpose system is a computer-controlled, compact inhalation exposure system that offers turnkey solutions for aerosols, cigarette smoke, atmospheric pollutants or test compounds. It features a low-internal volume construction to minimize unintentional dilutions, thereby allowing for rapid achievements and changes of desired test atmosphere concentrations.
