New test system investigates how dangerous air pollutants really are

How severely do smog, diesel exhaust and secondhand smoke damage the lungs? What do pollen or nanoparticles trigger when they infiltrate the human body through inhaling? At this year's BIO Convention in Chicago from May 3 to 6, Fraunhofer researchers will present a new test system that can be used to investigate these questions.
