NanoXtract is a unique online tool for the calculation of image descriptors based on Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) images of NMs that was developed and made available through the Enalos Nanoinformatics platform. The tool can generate a set of 18 image descriptors that greatly enhance and enrich the information extracted from images and which can be explored using predictive modelling to identify those descriptors most predictive of NM behaviour and /or biological effects. This tool fulfils the unmet need for the generation of larger sets of nano-specific descriptors with minimal experimental data requirements. Within a simple and user-friendly interface, the user can upload a NM TEM image and with just a few clicks to select the core and coating descriptors, obtain a significant set of NM image descriptors.
