Particle Platform

The Particle Platform is an industry initiative coordinated by CEFIC,in which all major particle producers are represented, driving by the common goal to obtain better tests for so-called poorly soluble low toxicity (PSLT) particles, containing important particle groups such as amorphous silica's, talc, kaolin and many others. Current test protocols for specific [...]

Inflammation and adversity

It took a while but finally our paper went online in Toxicology Letters. The paper emerged out of the SAS4REACH consortium in which we discussed the pathology outcome of 14 different particles after subchronic inhalation. The fact that inflammation occurs after most particle exposures is not new, and frustrating classification. However, [...]

Microplastics white paper delivered to ICCA

A significant part of 2020, Nanoconsult has spent on composing a white paper on the health impact of microplastic particles. For this effort a read-across approach was taken to use current know-how and paradigms developed in other particle area's such as PSLT, nanomaterials and ambient PM. The final report was now delivered [...]

leerzaam symposium

Het Brightlands material center legde deze maand uit wat er allemaal bij komt kijken als je plastics en verpakkingen circulair wil maken. Een leerzame webinar die ik U kan aanbevelen zolang die nog online staat. Voor mij was dan weer nieuw dat de pigmenten (bv carbon black) en de labels zoveel storen [...]

ChemWatch continues debate on PSLT

Yesterday's issue of ChemWatch dedicated an Fresh debate over rodent tests for lung cancer with PSLTs-. Based on a commentary by Danish research Group (Ulla Vogel et al), and the reply by Driscolletal_2020 in Partcile & Fibre Toxicology it became clear that the issue still raises a series of questions. Whereas [...]
