Human biomonitoring of nanomaterials: Challenges and Achievements

Nanotechnology is a fast growing and promising technology due to its potential to develop new add-values products. Their increased production, handling and availability on the market brings innovative applications, but can also lead to personal exposure with the potential for unforeseen biological effects. In particular, workers in companies manufacturing and handling nanomaterials are likely to have regular exposures to engineered nanomaterials and incidental ultrafine dusts.

NanoExplore: Exposure and Devise

Thu, Oct 8, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM GMT The Life NanoExplore project is working to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated approach to conduct biomonitoring studies, characterise exposure levels and elucidate possible health effects deriving from exposure to engineered nanomaterials (ENM). During this webinar we will discuss the NanoExplore webtool covering the following points: • Design of the NanoExplore web based platform • Main components and functionalities Follow on from this topic we will discuss the wireless sensor prototype covering the following points: • Its main components and function: what and how is measured • The program of control: how it is operated • Remote control of the sensor
