Mérieux NutriSciences goes to Nanoinnovation 2021
Mérieux NutriSciences - Convegno Nanoinnovation


Once again, Federico Benetti - Executive Director of ECSIN LAB part of Mérieux NutriSciences – talks during the Nanoinnovation 2021 Conference!

During the session AgriNanoTechniques: Nanomaterials for products and application in agriculture, Federico Benetti is going to hold a speech about “Analytical methodologies for the detection of nanomaterials: state of the art”, on Wednesday 22nd September – 2:00pm – 3:30 pm (CET).

What about the speech?

Nanomaterials applications in food and agriculture sectors is increasing providing challenging and innovative opportunities. For assuring the human safety, the development of specific tools for ingested nanomaterials is crucial and it has been highlighted by several national and international regulatory bodies - as EFSA and ISO.

One of the main topic is the nanomaterials behaviour in gastrointestinal environment after oral ingestion. Thanks to the collaboration with the ISS and IIT, Mérieux NutriSciences is developing a new OECD Guidance Document aimed to establish conceptual framework and procedures for determining nanomaterials fate in a simulated in vitro intestinal environment.
