ABSTRACT
This test method provides a protocol for quantitative analysis of the effect of nanoparticulate materials in physiologic solution on granulocyte-macrophage colony-forming units. This test method employs murine bone marrow hematopoietic stem cells which proliferate and differentiate to form discrete cell clusters or colonies which are counted.
