R&D services covering the entire nanomaterial lifecycle

Published on 30 January 2017


Our R&D services cover the entire nanomaterial lifecycle, from fabrication and integration to use, environmental impacts, and end-of-lifecycle management. Our five focus areas are: 

CHARACTERIZATION, DETECTION, METHODS                                                                    
  • Developing measurement and characterization protocols

  • Developing sampling and monitoring tools suitable for use in industrial settings

​​​​PARTICULE DESIGN, SAFER-BY-DESIGN INTEGRATION PROCESSES​​
  • Developing Safer-by-Design materials
  • Developing safe industrial processes
ECOTOXICOLOGY

  • Assessing the toxicology of nanomaterials using standardized procedures
  • Assessing the toxicology of nanomaterials using improved procedures​



INDUSTRIAL HEALTH AND SAFETY
  • Monitoring processes

  • Monitoring worker exposure

  • Employee monitoring method: Medical Biology Laboratory (MBL)

NANOMATERIALS SAFETY THROUGHOUT THE PRODUCT LIFECYCLE
  • Making nanoproducts safer

  • Recycling nanoproducts and managing end-of-lifecycle issues
