Metrology for innovative nanotherapeutics
To advance the development of measurement methods to detect, localise and quantify NPs in biological tissues, to compare the results obtained by orthogonal techniques, and to evaluate their robustness and associated uncertainty. To support the methodological development, the following biological samples will be considered: model tissue phantoms, cell cultures and animal or human tissues spiked with controlled amounts of the previously characterised NPs (WP1).
An internal ILC will be organised and performed to consolidate the measurement methods, correlate the results and define measurement uncertainties. This internal comparison will provide the protocol for the initiation of an external ILC in the framework of the VAMAS TW40 (WP5).
