The Impact of New EU Legislation on Nanomaterials and How Nanosight Can Help

The EU has recently published their definition of nanomaterials. Jeremy Warren from Nanosight indicates how this will impact industries that deal with nanomaterials and materials that may generate materials in the "nano" size range, as well as areas such as ecotoxicology and environmental monitoring.

This definition and the ability to differentiate nanomaterials from macro materials is important, as many studies have shown that the properties of these materials may differ greatly, despite the fact the chemical composition may be identical. This means that the property differences can be attributed to the particle size.

He also indicates how the Nanosight NS500 is suitable for characterizing/counting nanoparticles.
