Most effort in a spectroscopic ellipsometry and QCM-D measurement is done setting up the instruments and liquid flow assembly. To help make life a little easier, consider the following tips & tricks.Read More
How does a nanomaterial interact with a cell?
How nanomaterials interact with the environment after they have been disposed of has many implications for potential toxicity and health concerns. Whether nanomaterials are being incorporated into commercial goods for their anti-microbial properties such as in work-out clothes or used for targeted drug therapies their overall prevalence is increasing. Therefore, the likelihood of someone coming into contact with these materials is also increasing.Read More
