Nanotechnology Research Hazards


With considerable education and experience in the nanotechnology materials and characterization realm as well as a background in toxicology, ScanTech is uniquely qualified to survey, research and evaluate the possible effects of nanoparticles ( particles typically in the 1 – 100 nm size regime) for worker and consumer safety as well as environmental impact. With a strong materials science and physical chemistry background, the complex effects of size, geometry, electric charge and scaled bulk material properties is a new frontier that cannot be ignored as these new metamaterials are being increasingly used in everything from nanomedical and military applications to consumer products.
