The ATS International Conference is the home of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep professionals, from those in the earliest stages of their careers to those whose research or strides in clinical care has gained them international recognition. Each year, nearly 14,000 of these professionals choose to attend, present, and learn about the latest advances, meet with colleagues from around the world, and strike new collaborations. It is truly where today’s science meets tomorrow’s care.
The International Conference is also multidisciplinary. Clinicians and researchers in many other fields attend the conference, thereby enriching conversations that lead to insights that ultimately improve patient care. Among the many other specialties represented in sessions at the International Conference are:

FinePointe Systems for Inhalation and Exposure
is powerful and easy-to-use for collecting, analyzing, and reporting life science data. Fully network-enabled, the smart design minimizes required user interaction while wizards walk users through necessary procedures.
Inhalation Products Designed by Respiratory Experts
ALL NEW Stackable Inhalation Tower
The DSI Buxco inhalation exposure system is designed with the ease-of-use desired by researchers new to inhalation exposure, yet providing the performance and flexibility required by the inhalation exposure expert. Unique to DSI is the ability to perform accurate real-time respiration monitoring during exposure
, critical for animal welfare and determining accurate deposition levels. With a high degree of port-to-port uniformity, this high efficiency system provides exceptional protocol repeatability, translating into high yield exposure studies. The inhalation tower utilizes an expandable yet compact, “flow-past” design, eliminating rebreathing concerns. Supported species include mice, rats, guinea pigs and ferrets. A stackable tower design for 1 to 6 levels and up to 42 subjects.
Single Subject Inhalation Exposure
DSI’s Buxco Single Site Exposure Station
is a single port nose-only exposure device.
DSI’s Buxco Smoke Generator
is completely automated and requires no on-site operator. Simply load the cigarettes, press “Start,” and the system will run unattended. It captures direct and indirect smoke and delivers it to mass dosing chambers or individual exposure tubes.
FinePointe Systems for Respiratory Studies
Whole Body Plethysmography
When conscious, unrestrained approaches are desired, FinePointe whole body plethysmography allows for respiratory endpoints to be obtained. With the use of a bias flow supply, longer data collection periods can be obtained; allowing for evaluation of compounds that might have an effect beyond 4-6 hours post dose.
Using Allay restraints, animals are comfortably and properly secured in plethysmographs without compromising the thorax to obtain consistent and
reliable direct flow measurements.
Resistance and Compliance
FinePointe resistance and compliance hardware
helps researchers measure an animal’s airflow and lung pressure. This anesthetized approach allows for direct measurement pulmonary function as a follow up study to the core
Non-Invasive Airway Mechanics Station
Conscious follow up studies for safety pharmacology and longitudinal toxicology studies alike can take advantage of the FinePointe non-invasive airway mechanics station. Using specially designed Allay restraint and double chamber plethysmography, nasal and thoracic flow can be monitored simultaneously to derived specific airway resistance.
DSI Products in Other Research Applications
Small Animal PhysioTel HD-X and HD-S series telemetry implants are used in small animals such as mice, rats, ferrets or guinea pigs. These implants are capable of
measuring pressure, temperature, activity, glucose, and biopotential signals.
Large Animal PhysioTel Digital M and L series implants are designed for single use or long-term implantation in animals of rabbit size or larger. These implants are capable of
measuring pressure, temperature, glucose, activity and biopotential signals.
