Application Note: Analysis of Nanotoxicity: Particle Characterization & Centrifugation
29 June 2016

This application note provides insight into the inherent shortcomings that are present in traditional cellular toxicity assays, and how these shortcomings are magnified when the toxicity assay involves nanomaterial. Nanomedicine is a field common to materials scientists, chemists, biomedical engineers, biologists and medical scientists. Beckman Coulter tools enable quantification of cellular toxicity caused by nanoparticles; reducing time to remove aggregated particles and quantifying cell toxicity in the presence of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
