Centrifuge machines are one of the main vectors to disperse aerosol in the laboratory environment as they spin at a great velocity and exert the force needed to produce respirable aerosols. If these aerosols are inhaled, laboratory-acquired infections could result.
Respirable aerosols 0.5 [micro]m to <1.0 [micro]m were found to exhibit distinctly different aerodynamic behaviors when compared to aerosols 1.0 [micro]m-10.0 [micro]m.
The Mystic technology generates non-pressurized, nearly mono-dispersed respirable aerosols by an electrostatic spray process called EHD.
The water-based fluids (soluble oils and synthetic fluids) are prone to high levels of microbial contamination, and routine use of MWFs can result in the generation of respirable aerosols (3).
