By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Nanomaterials. According to news reporting from Frederick, Maryland, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory's (NCL) unique set-up has allowed our lab to handle and test a variety of nanoparticle platforms intended for the delivery of cancer therapeutics and/or imaging contrast agents. Over the last six years, the NCL has characterized more than 250 different nanomaterials from more than 75 different investigators."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory, "These submitted nanomaterials stem from a range of backgrounds and experiences, including government, academia and industry. This has given the NCL a unique and valuable opportunity to observe trends in nanoparticle safety and biocompatibility, as well as note some of the common mistakes and oversights of nanoformulation."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "While not exhaustive, this article aims to share some of the most common pitfalls observed by the NCL as they relate to nanoparticle synthesis, purification, characterization and analysis."
