FastNanoToxTest addresses the need for rapid assessment of the potential toxicity of nanomaterials and nanomaterials containing samples. A biofilm- and sensor- integrated microfluidic screening platform is developed to determine the toxic effect of engineered nanomaterials on the intestinal flora and aquatic organisms. The microfluidic chip system is based on bioprinted cells combined with inkjet-printed integrated sensors providing dynamic metabolic data of the cell viability. The development is supported by fundamental research on the biological effects of nanomaterials on the gut microbiota and algae as model organism.
