The objective of this workshop is to teach participants the skills to develop robust nanobio assays for evaluating the potential applications or implications of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). This will be accomplished by teaching principles of measurement science in assay design, interlaboratory comparisons, and key issues for nanobio measurements.
Participants will gain experience developing assays by working in breakout groups to analyze several common assays using cause-and-effect analysis, to design control experiments to assess assay performance and uncertainties of key processes, and to develop protocols for each of the assays.
