About the Aerosol Lab

The CAA offers unique opportunities for aerosol research by operating an aerosol laboratory.  The lab is also licensed to handle radioactivity for radioactive tracing of aerosol particles to be used in respiratory diagnostics and therapies.  Our experienced lab technicians utilize a variety of equipment to accurately measure factors affecting aerosol drug delivery, including the amount of medication that would be received by a patient, aerosol particle size distributions, and aerosol generation rates.
