Nanomaterial chemical testing, risk assessment, and safety advice are some of the ways we help our clients with nanotechnology innovation.
When applied in a number of industries and consumer items, nanomaterials and new designed nanotechnology have the potential to significantly improve quality of life. Understanding the unique features of nanomaterials and addressing possible safety or risk concerns for human health and the environment are critical to realizing the potential of your nanomaterial goods. Preclinical research design, regulatory affairs and liaison, toxicology, epidemiology, and risk assessment are among our vast nanomaterials and nanotechnology skills. We can assist you in determining whether the qualities that distinguish nanoparticles (e.g., size, relative surface area, chemistry, and functionality) are linked to unintended biological effects or toxicity. We assist you in understanding your product and assessing any potential health or environmental consequences using our knowledge.
Our specialists at Sanray may also do chemical and physical testing to help you satisfy changing national and international regulatory standards. Our team uses nano-scale analysis to characterize your products, focusing on particle size, morphology, dispersion, homogeneity, and optical and physical qualities. We can provide the chemical, physical, toxicological, risk assessment data, and regulatory support you need to move your innovation, manufacturing, or regulatory submission forward with Sanray as your partner.
Nanomaterials are used in apparel and textile products to improve performance and functional properties like antimicrobial, flammability resistance, fragrance release, moisture management, shrink resistance, stain resistance, static protection, UV protection, water repellence, and wrinkle resistance.
Nanoencapsulation is used in pharmaceutical formulations to increase the bioavailability of pharmaceutical active components (API).
Food and Nutrition:
Nanotechnology has a wide range of applications in the food industry, including nutrient and bioactive absorption and delivery systems, ingredient functionality, improved colors and flavours, microbial, allergen, and other contaminants detection and control, and food packaging properties and performance.
Cosmetics have been produced to create a ‘flawless’ or ‘brightened’ appearance by integrating Nano sized polymer entities or silica particles. Nanoliposomes technology can aid in the regulated release of a fragrance or moisturizer, as well as improve product stability in some circumstances. The necessity to characterize Nano sized components in these goods is driven by regulatory restrictions.
Chemicals with a niche market:
Insecticides and other specialty chemicals are increasingly using Nano sized systems to improve product functionality. Nano encapsulated active substances provide the potential for more targeted or controlled release over time in formulations. Materials such as rubbers, plastics, and composites – Carbon nanotubes, which are exceedingly thin tubes of elemental carbon (about 1/100000th the thickness of a single human hair), are being used to improve the physical and mechanical performance of these materials.
Graphene and other nanomaterials are being employed to improve the electrical and optical properties of materials and components used in electronics. Batteries, electrodes, and transparent conductive films are some of the applications.
