Time-of-flight (TOF) aerosol analyzers are a class of instruments that measure the aerodynamic diameter of individual particles following a controlled acceleration in a well-defined flow field. Two instruments have been used to analyze the size of medical aerosols: Aerosizer particle size analyzer (TSI Particle Instruments/Amherst, Amherst, MA), Aerodynamic Particle Sizer (APS) aerosol spectrometer (TSI) Both instruments are capable of sizing several thousand particles a second, making it… CONTINUE READING
