ABSTRACT
ISO/TR 16197:2014 provides a compilation and description of in vitro and in vivo methods that can be useful for the toxicological, including ecotoxicological screening of engineered and manufactured nanomaterials. Toxicological screening tests included in ISO/TR 16197:2014 can be used for such purposes as early decision-making in research and product development, rapid feedback on potential toxicological/safety concerns, or for the preliminary assessment of manufactured nanomaterials. ISO/TR 16197:2014 is divided between screening assays related to humans and screening assays related to the environment. A screening test is a relatively simple, inexpensive test that can be administered easily and provides an indication of potential adverse outcomes and effects on human health or the environment.
