A new handbook has been published under Empa leadership which aims to unify European standards in nanoparticle research. It contains detailed regulations for the manufacture and analysis of specific nanoparticles in the laboratory environment, placing research work in this field on a unified foundation and enabling valid comparisons to be made between studies. The new standard work is intended to bring to an end to the confusing mishmash of jargon which currently prevails in the nanoresearch field.

The new fundamental reference work, named the "Quality Handbook” and subtitled "Standard Procedures for Nanoparticle Testing”, is intended to provide a common scientific basis for European research projects in the nanomaterials field. The document was put together by the "Nanommune” consortium, a group of European and US research institutes, and financed by the European commission under the aegis of the 7th Framework Program. The handbook can be downloaded from here.
