LGC, the UK’s designated National Measurement Institute for chemical and bioanalytical measurement, is developing a range of nanoparticle reference materials to enable the development of traceable methods for improved in vitro toxicity measurement for safety assessment.

These will be assessed for their physical and chemical properties in an in vitro biological matrix. These  materials will be based on the high quality nanoparticles produced by the EU-Joint Research Centre (JRC) which have undergone extensive physical characterization in the dry-powder form. LGC are carrying out the characterization work using a unique combination of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis , with field flow fractionation coupled to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (FFF-ICPMS), allowing complex suspensions of nanomaterials to be characterized for their size, size distribution, charge, concentration, dissolution and elemental composition.

Iˇ¦ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this site. Studying this info So i am happy to express that I’ve a very just right uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I so much indubitably will make sure to do not fail to remember this site and give it a glance regularly.
