Increasing commercial use of nanomaterials, exposure of workers to dusty environments and pollution in urban areas makes exposure to nanoparticles a major public health concern.
According to the Wold health organisation, up to 4.2 million premature deaths worldwide every year are caused because of the inhalation of small particles
To cope with this situation, last April 2018, European Union member states voted in favour of amending several annexes of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals Legislation (REACH), considering that information on uses and exposure to nanomaterials should be provided to demonstrate their safe use.
Therefore, robust and reliable instruments that monitor nanoparticles are needed to meet the growing demand for exposure assessment studies.
Nanowatcher by ControlNano is the ideal solution to guarantee safe exposure to nanoparticles. It improves health risk assessment devices developed up to date thanks to 3 main features: It is robust, providing reliable data in harsh and dusty environments, easy to use, without any technical knowledge or training and supplies automatic reporting according to REACH Regulation.
