D2.4 - Detailed Cost of Good Analysis and Safety Assessment of the Separation Cartridge Module
A comprehensive assessment of the safety and cost of the microfluidic separation cartridge used in the SMART-NANO project highlighted reduced or negligible safety concerns in comparison with current analytical devices. The cartridge is expected to provide increased safety and lower costs, thus providing a relevant improvement to the analytical procedures for the identification and measurement of engineered nanoparticles. The separation cartridge is, according to our current estimates, fully compatible with the existing EU and US regulation. No complications or limitations related to this specific cartridge module were identified. Environmental concerns and required safety measures were addressed and observed to be minimal, according to the defined ecologically-sound objectives.
