ISO publishes standard on use and application of acellular in vitro tests and methodologies to assess nanomaterial biodurability

Date: 02/11/2017

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) have published standard ISO/TR 19057:2017 “Nanotechnologies — Use and application of acellular in vitro tests and methodologies to assess nanomaterial biodurability”.

The standard reviews the use and application of acellular in vitro tests and methodologies implemented in the assessment of the biodurability of nanomaterials and their ligands in simulated biological and environmental media. It is intended to focus more on acellular in vitro methodologies implemented to assess biodurability and, therefore, excludes the general review of relevant literature on in vitro cellular or animal biodurability tests.
