CarbonBlack is a joint project aimed at establishing a test system with test models of increasing complexity to verify the toxicological effect of modified and well-characterized CBNP in the respiratory tract and in the lung. The multi-stage test system includes simple cell culture models, tissue culture models, and verification methods based on inhalation studies within animal models.
