    PExA 2017 event, 10th of September, PM 4-7.30

    It is with delight we conduct our third PExA event  to be held in the centre of Milan, Italy the 10th of September 2017.

    PExA is a new non-invasive method for sampling of Respiratory Tract Lining Fluid (RTLF) from small airways. Small droplets, or particles, that arise when small airways close and re-open, are collected from the exhaled air and sampled by impaction. The method open-ups for quantitative and reproducible measurements of changes in the composition of the lining fluid from small airways in respiratory disease.

    During the event researchers, some of early adopters of the method, will present new results from clinical studies.  We will discuss the results as well as the PExA-method´s potential. Also there will be an opportunity to see and test the PExA 2.0 device.

    The number of participants is limited, so we advice you to to register early.

    Welcome to Milan and an exciting event!
