Short summary
This study describes the design, manufacture and proof-of-concept of the 3-D printed fluidized bed generator PRIZE, which is a compact, simple and low-cost addition to existing dry particle generation instruments. The generator is capable of dispersing aerosol particles from dry material without itself generating significant particles (< 5 % by number at 0.2 g of ATD without a stainless steel insert, negligible with). It is therefore ideal for use in minimally appointed lab and field conditions.
