Advances in nanotechnology have resulted in widespread use of nanomaterials (1), bringing with them new and unreported toxicity hazards. There is increasing demand for modern manufacturing techniques which incorporate safety-by-design (SbD) principles.

  • Nanomaterial (NM) production can expose the end user and production workers to toxic media
  • High-throughput, in vitro screening methods are essential for meeting the demands of hazard identification (2, 3)
  • Previous in-vitro methods rely on viability assays with living cells, which take days to cultivate
