The use of nanotechnology in medical products has been demonstrated at laboratory scale, and many resulting nanomedicines are in the translational phase toward clinical applications, with global market trends indicating strong growth of the sector in the coming years. The translation of nanomedicines toward the clinic and subsequent commercialization may require the development of new or adaptation of existing standards to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of such products. This work addresses some identified needs, and illustrates the shortcomings of currently used standardized methods when applied to medical-nanoparticles to assess particle size, drug loading, drug release and in vitro safety. Alternative physicochemical, and in vitro toxicology methods, with the potential to qualify as future standards supporting the evaluation of nanomedicine are provided.

  • European Nanocharacterization laboratory (EUNCL) meets in Münster
    Three years ago, EUNCL was funded as starting community by the European H2020 program with the goal to increase the safety of new nano-based medical products. The representatives and experts from all over Europe met in Münster on May 24th to discuss about the progress in establishing the reference laboratory they set up for the last 3 years and its further development beyond 2019. The partners located in Münster are the only German party involved in EUNCL.
  • Seeking a Formulation Scientist
    The Nanotechnology Characterization Lab (NCL) provides nanotechnology formulation and characterization services for universities, the pharmaceutical industry and other government programs. Since our founding in 2004, the NCL has characterized more than 400 different nanomedicines for more than 100 organizations worldwide. We are currently seeking a Formulation Scientist to join our team. Those having experience with liposomes, micelles, and emulsions are especially encouraged to apply.
  • EURONANOFORUM 2017 – Partners presented EUNCL
    EUNCL partners presented the project and the service we offer to our sponsors in a booth as part of the exhibition. EuroNanoForum 2017 focused on how nano and materials technologies can strengthen competitiveness across all European industries.
