Journal: Nanomaterials (2018)
Institution: West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin
Research Areas: Biocompatibility
Cell Lines: L929, MCF-7 (Mouse fibroblasts, human breastcancer)
Summary: Due to its chemical properties hexagonal boron nitride with gold nanoparticles may be an interesting material for cancer drug delivery etc. In this study, potential biomedical applications and cytotoxicity of the material was evaluated. HoloMonitor M4 was used as a tool to determine the effects on cell proliferation and cell morphology over time, after exposue to the material.
