Enalos Cloud PlatformA friendly user interface for Chem / Nano Informatics ApplicationsOverview Enalos Cloud Platform, developed by NovaMechanics Ltd, is an online, freely available cheminformatics and nanoinformatics cloud platform, that hosts predictive models released as web services, which aim to address the need to reduce the amount of time and cost spent on experimental testing…

Enalos Read Across Platform: zeta potential predictive model based on image nanodescriptors

Enalos Read Across PlatformZeta Potential Predictive Model Based on Image NanodescriptorsOverview A new predictive model has been developed within NanoCommons project with the aid of Enalos Cloud Platform to support the safety-by-design concept. More specifically a read across predictive model was developed for zeta-potential of NMs and released through the platform as an online application.…

Nano-related experimental workflows

Nano-related Experimental WorkflowsOverview LEITAT is offering guidance on nano-related experimental workflows, which may include site visits, either to established facilities (as a reference in terms of layout, equipment needs, workflow, etc.) or to new facilities (in order to identify potential pitfalls), web-based information exchange forums, organisation of round-robin tests to evaluate inter-laboratory precision. Support on…

ENM Physicochemical Characterisation Experimental Workflows

ENM Physicochemical Characterisation Experimental WorkflowsOverview The Environmental Nanoscience Group (ENG) of the University of Birmingham (UoB) has long experience on one of the key pillars of nanosafety research, which is the full physicochemical characterisation of the engineered nanomaterials (ENM). ENG has established detailed experimental workflows, which include the use of various instruments (e.g. TEM, DLS,…

Electronic Laboratory Notebooks

Electronic Laboratory NotebooksOverview One of the main objectives of NanoCommons is to promote the FAIR data principles, cross-project collaboration and data interoperability. This way, it will be possible to offer the nanosafety community with high quality data that can be combined to produce big datasets and be used in novel modelling, machine learning, deep learning…
