In vitro characterization allows you to add characterizations for the nanomaterial component of the sample derived from analytical techniques performed under in vitro conditions.

To add an in vitro characterization

  1. Access a sample and characterization, as described in Accessing the Sample Characterization Summary.
  2. Click the All tab or the In Vitro Characterizations tab and click Add next to In Vitro Characterization.
  3. Both tabs provide customizations based on your Characterization Type* selection.

  4. Follow these steps to fill in the characterization. 

    SectionWhat to Do
    In Vitro Characterization

    Fill in the general information about the characterization.

    When you are defining the characterization, to select an existing, non-standard Assay Type, select the Characterization Name, other_vt.

    For details, refer to Defining the Characterization


    If you select one of the following characterization names, you need to fill in additional properties.

    • Cytotoxicity
    • Enzyme Induction
    • Transfection

    For details, refer to Defining In Vitro Characterization Properties.

    Design and MethodsComplete the fields describing techniques and instruments used to derive the data. For details, refer to Defining Characterization Design and Methods.

    Add data findings and supporting documentation relating to the sample. Import as many UTF-8 .csv files as you wish or add derived data manually. For details, refer to Adding Data Findings to a Characterization.

    Click Add to expand the section, and add data findings and add supporting documents to the characterization. For details, refer to Adding Supporting Documents to a Characterization.

    Analysis and ConclusionEnter any relevant analyses and conclusions reached by the data.
    Copy to Other Samples with the Same Primary OrganizationSelect samples in the list to which you want this physico-chemical data transferred. This option copies files and data to one or more selected samples "owned" by the same point of contact. For details, refer to Copying a Characterization to Samples in the Same Primary Organization.

    If you paste text into an input field, review it before submitting the text to the system. Make sure the formatting (such as superscript, subscript, bold, and Italics), Greek letters, and other special characters appear as expected. For details, refer to Correcting Special Text

  5. When you are finished, click Submit to save the data to the sample.
