Introducing a new standardized nanomaterial environmental toxicity screening testing procedure, ISO TS/20787: aquatic toxicity assessment of manufactured nanomaterials in saltwater lakes using Artemia sp. nauplii

Abstract: 
This paper introduces a new standardized testing procedure for nanomaterial environmental toxicity (ISO/TS 20787): "aquatic toxicity assessment of manufactured nanomaterials in saltwater lakes using Artemia sp. Nauplii" intended to generate reliable and repeatable aquatic toxicity data testing manufactured nanomaterials, using Artemia sp., to evaluate their possible ecotoxicity in saltwater lake ecosystems. The principles behind testing with Artemia sp. are reviewed and our paper gives an overview of research published between 2008 and 2018 in which manufactured nanomaterials were tested using Artemia sp.
