Suggest you look at the website


California higher ed representatives, in a collaborative effort with California Department of Toxic Substances Control and NIOSH, developed a NanoToolKit for work with nanomaterials in academic research. The NanoToolKit is downloadable in Word at:


Depending on the nature of the nanomaterials being handled, type and amount, the guide will provide some practical information for you.

Dear  members,


   Does anyone have a source on  a containment system  for  safely weighing  dry nanomaterial?   A chemical hood is usually too turbulent for the accuracy of a Mettler balance.  Any thought you have including precaution(s) to take for this type of  work would be appreciated.  


Thank you and keep up the great work you do.
