The use of multiwell culture plates in the duckweed toxicity test-A case study on Zn nanoparticles.

Extensive production of nanomaterials of various properties needs to be coupled with rapid toxicity testing in order to provide information about their potential risks to the environment and human health. Miniaturization of toxicity tests may accelerate economical testing of nanomaterials, but is not a common practice. We describe a case study to… (More)
