In vitro studies nano particles

Aim is to develop knowledge about possible responses of several different types of cell lines after exposure to different types of nano-particles.

Because of the high degree of variability of nano particles and cell lines it is often difficult to generalize results and use for risk assessment. A systematic risk characterization of a panel of nano particles on cell lines is needed. With the results of this project, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation has a good knowledge of participating in social and political debate on safety of nano particles.
