Supporting the responsible use of nanomaterials
Nanosafety Platform general presentation
The Nanosafety Platform possesses the in-depth knowledge, advanced equipment (high-throughput cellular screening platform), and partnerships to bring industrial customers state-of-the-art toxicological studies that comply with the latest OECD recommendations. The measurements are not suitable for regulatory compliance purposes.
However, they do position our industrial customers to gain deeper knowledge of their products.
The services provided include measuring cytotoxicity in real time and analyzing cellular mortality, oxidative stress, and genotoxicity. The tests are carried out in vitro and, for advanced genotoxicity testing, in vivo.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
