Particokinetics and in vitro dose of high aspect ratio nanoparticles

Seth Richard Price, Calum Kinnear, Sandor Balog



Computational particokinetics models become essential in the design and interpretation of in vitro nanoparticle toxicology assays involving submerged adherent cell cultures. Yet, none of the current models offers the possibility of addressing the delivered dose of high-aspect ratio nanoparticles, including nanorods, nanotubes, and nanofibers. Here we present a straightforward method that lends this ability to any of the models used currently.
