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: http://www.goodnanoguide.org/Research+Facility+Protocols
Depending on the nature of the nanomaterials being handled, type and amount, the guide will provide some practical information for you.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] working with nanomaterial
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.
