New manuscript in Nature Nanotechnology
Anzhela and colleagues have recently published in Nature Nanotechnology their Perspective on the analytical techniques for the detection and characterization of engineered nanoparticles in both human and environmental toxicology.
The need to assess the human and environmental risks of nanoscale materials has prompted the development of new metrological tools for their detection, quantification and characterization. Some of these methods have tremendous potential for use in various scenarios of nanotoxicology. However, in some cases, the limited dialogue between environmental scientists and human toxicologists has hampered the full exploitation of these resources. Here we review recent progress in the development of methods for nanomaterial analysis and discuss the use of these methods in environmental and human toxicology. We highlight the opportunities for collaboration between these two research areas.
