JRC Announces New Standardized Nanomaterial Environmental Toxicity Screening Testing Procedure

The European Commission (EC) Joint Research Center (JRC) announced publication of a paper introducing a new standardized testing procedure for nanomaterial environmental toxicity, "Introducing a new standardized nanomaterial environmental toxicity screening testing procedure, ISO/TS 20787: aquatic toxicity assessment of manufactured nanomaterials in saltwater lakes using Artemia sp. nauplii." See https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/publication/introducing-new-standardized-nanomaterial-environmental-toxicity-screening-testing-procedure-iso and https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/15376516.2018.1512695?journalCode=itxm20 The abstract states that the testing procedure is intended to generate more reliable and repeatable aquatic toxicity data testing manufactured nanomaterials, using Artemia sp., to evaluate their possible ecotoxicity in saltwater lake ecosystems. The paper reviews the principles behind testing with Artemia sp. and provides an overview of research published between 2009 and 2018 in which manufactured nanomaterials were tested using Artemia sp.
