Fig. 5. Schematic illustration of the mini-lung to be reconstructed by combining 3D cell printing and microfluidic approaches for mimicking the anatomical hierarchy of the human lung with the trachea, bronchi, bronchiole, and alveoli. The mini-lung system facilitate the risk assessment of air-born particles such as asbestos fibers, ultrafine dusts, nanoplastics, and aerosols.
