A fruit-fly in the nanoworld: Once again Drosophila contributes to environment and human health

Posted on April 29, 2014 at 10:47am 0 Comments

Drosophila was the most important model organism used in the fields of medicine and biology over the last century. Recently, Drosophila was successfully used in several studies in the field of nanotoxicology. However, only a part of its potential has been exploited in this field until now. In fact, apart from macroscopic observations of the effect due to the interaction between nanomaterials and living organism (i.e. lifespan, fertility, phenotypic aberrations, etc.),…

Lab-on-a-Chip-Based High-Throughput Screening of the Genotoxicity of Engineered Nanomaterials

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 4:45pm 0 Comments

The continuous increasing of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in our environment, their combinatorial diversity, and the associated genotoxic risks, highlight the urgent need to better define the possible toxicological effects of ENMs. In this context, we present a new high-throughput screening (HTS) platform based on the cytokinesis-block micronucleus (CBMN) assay, lab-on-chip cell sorting, and automated image analysis. This HTS platform has been successfully applied to the evaluation of the…


Ranking the in vivo toxicity of nanomaterials in Drosophila melanogaster

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 4:41pm 0 Comments


In this work, we propose a quantitative assessment of nanoparticles toxicity in vivo. We show a quantitative ranking of several types of nanoparticles (AuNPs, AgNPs, cadmium-based QDs, cadmium-free QDs, and iron oxide NPs, with different coating and/or surface chemistries), providing a categorization of their toxicity outcomes. This strategy may offer an innovative high-throughput screening tool of nanomaterials, of potential and broad interest to the nanoscience…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
