Title FDA Publishes Nanotechnology Report and Pioneering Nanomaterial Testing Services to Advance Research and Industry
Introduction Advanced MicroAnalytical offers solutions to nanomaterial testing challenges to support research and development efforts and the production of innovative materials and products.

Salem, NH, November 16th, 2020

Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published Nanotechnology - Over a Decade of Progress and Innovation. Nanotechnology, which is science, engineering and technology conducted at the nanoscale, is a rapidly emerging field that brings countless new benefits, possibilities and challenges to society and industry.

Nanotechnology utilizing nanomaterials, also referred to as nanoparticles, is a rapidly growing component of modern industry and medical research. Nanomaterials come in a wide variety of compositions and shapes which make them useful in everything from consumer and medical products, to energy production and aerospace.

The new FDA publication reports that the agency has a dedicated nanotechnology budget and has continued to strengthen its research infrastructure by establishing two core facilities to support nanotechnology regulatory science research and to build scientific expertise and capacity. The agency has conducted internal research on advanced physico-chemical characterization, in vitro biocompatibility, and in vivo safety studies to ascertain the critical quality attributes of nanomaterials, and to prepare FDA scientists and reviewers for the emerging products. The report also states that the FDA anticipates that nanotechnology may play a critical role in the design, development and manufacture of next-generation products.

These are all reasons why the scientists and engineers at Advanced MicroAnalytical provide companies, institutions and research scientists with testing and consulting services to examine, assess and assist with the development of nanomaterials. They offer a number of techniques for working with these exceptionally tiny materials. These include special preparation techniques, like cryomicrotoming, FIB sectioning, FESEM imaging and elemental analysis to atomic lattice resolution HR-STEM analysis for particles and thin sections. These and other services are all available at Advanced MicroAnalytical’s dedicated materials testing facility.
