In recent years, there have been many exciting breakthroughs in the application of nanotechnology to medicine. In Characterization of Nanoparticles Intended for Drug Delivery, expert researchers explore the latest advances in the field, providing a set of basic methods for the characterization of nanomaterials for medical use. Chapters provide methods to characterize the physiochemical properties (size, aggregation, and surface chemistry) and in vitro immunological and biological characteristics of nanomaterials. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and informative, Characterization of Nanoparticles Intended for Drug Delivery is an essential survey of methods that are crucial to the preclinical characterization of nanomedicines
