Study Results from Purdue University in the Area of Nanoparticles Reported (Nanoparticle characterization: state of the art, challenges, and emerging technologies)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanoparticles. According to news reporting originating in West Lafayette, Indiana, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Nanoparticles have received enormous attention as a promising tool to enhance target-specific drug delivery and diagnosis. Various in vitro and in vivo techniques are used to characterize a new system and predict its clinical efficacy."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Purdue University, "These techniques enable efficient comparison across nanoparticles and facilitate a product optimization process. On the other hand, we recognize their limitations as a prediction tool, due to inadequate applications and overly simplified test conditions."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We provide a critical review of in vitro and in vivo techniques currently used for evaluation of nanoparticles and introduce emerging techniques and models that may be used complementarily."
