(Nanowerk News) Engineered nanomaterials are diverse in their physical, chemical, and biological nature.
Nanomaterials have vastly different properties than their bulk counterparts, and therefore
very different toxicologies. As an emerging science, not much is known about the
toxicity of nanomaterials, and the earliest and most extensive exposure to engineered
nanomaterials is likely to occur in the work and research environment. Given the limited
information regarding health risks associated with exposure to nanoparticles, work
practices and engineering controls should be tailored to the processes and job tasks
associated with nanoparticles.
Flow Sciences, Inc. announces the release of a new product brochure containing vented
enclosure solutions for nanomaterial containment. These products satisfy NIOSH
recommendations for containing nanomaterials and utilize complex, engineered design
features to decrease turbulence inside the enclosure thus minimizing disturbance to any
nanoparticles being manipulated and studied. Solutions are available for virtually all
nanomaterial research and production applications and can be customized for specific
