Supporting the  development of new ISO standards for magnetic nanoparticles and products containing magnetic nanoparticles (MagNaStand)

Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) find wide application in biomedicine, mechanical engineering and environmental remediation. However, international standards defining terminology, characteristics and necessary measurement procedures for MNPs are missing. In 2015, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) began the implementation of a material specification for liquid suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles, registered as ISO 19807.

This project provides scientific input into the preparation of ISO 19807, ensure uptake of state of the art results into the international standardisation process, summarise metrological knowledge on MNPs according to ISO/TC 229 N 673 and secure the representation of European national metrology institutions and stakeholder interests in the development of the new ISO standard on MNPs.

Funding: EU EURAMET EMPIR Joint research project, Grant No: 16NRM04 MagNaStand (2017 - 2020)
