DEFRA Report CB01099

The REFNANO (Reference materials for engineered nanoparticle toxicology and metrology) project sought to provide a priority list of candidates for inclusion in a set of reference materials to support measurement, toxicology and risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles in the UK. In addition, the project identified a series of requirements for the further development and promulgation of reference materials for nanoparticles.

The final REFNANO report is available to download here.
