ABSTRACT
ČSN EN ISO 10801 This International Standard specifies requirements and recommendations for the formation of metal nanoparticles that are useful in aerosol form for inhalation toxicity studies by the evaporation / condensation method. The use is restricted to metals such as gold and silver, which have been shown to use the methodology specified (detailed in Annex A) to produce nanoparticles that can be used for inhalation toxicity testing.
