Summary of highlighted projects and modules in DIAMONDS
The HARMLESS project aims to develop a Decision Support System for Safe-by-Design for complex nano-materials and high-aspect ratio nano-materials.Read more about "harmless"
DTOX is a DIAMONDS project that integrates knowledge and data relating to the chemical structure, kinetics, metabolism, system biology and toxicity of substances with Omics data obtained from alternative experimental models for biological verification. This enables faster, more informed choices when investigating the safety of chemical substances for product development and/or registration.Read more about "dtox"
The Hotspot Scan is a public tool that allows a systematic and efficient assessment of potential hotspots in the life cycle of innovative products. To perform a full LCA can be a time-consuming and challenging task, the HotSpot Scan provides an intermediate assessment focusing on the strongest human health and environmental impacts based on establishing all the material flows.Read more about "hotspot scan"
Nano Exposure Quantifier
The Nano Exposure Quantifier (NEQ) is a quantitative exposure assessment tool. It is designed to assist users in the safe-by-design process and decisions to reduce risk as a result from working with manufactured nanomaterials. The NEQ offers a Tiered approach by adapting the questions based on the depth of information the user can provide allowing anywhere between a Tier-1 and a Tier-2 approach.Read more about "nano exposure quantifier"
