National Facility for Nanotoxicology Research of Nano-Agriproducts (NFNRNAP)


The National Facility for Nanotoxicological Research of Nano-Agriproducts (NCNRNAP) endeavors to facilitate development of safe nano-Agriproducts by following standard in vitro and in vivo test guidelines.

In vitro and in vivo nanotoxicological research is pivotal for fulfilling the regulatory requirements and commercialization of nano-agriproducts. The facility is focused to conduct investigation of the effects of the nano-agriproducts on human health and environment using in vitro and in vivo model systems for toxicity and risk assessment.

Partner Institutions

TDNBC, Gurugram, India; and AIIMS, New Delhi, India


The upcoming facility is visualized to be “state of the art facility” for Nanotoxicology research on nano agri-products. It aims at toxicological investigations using standard procedures adapted from OECD. Nano agri-products developed in-house or in any other government or private Indian research institution may be tested for human and environmental toxicity. A dose-response information for agricultural nanoproducts of national interest will be established.

The upcoming BSC level II laboratory supported by DBT as a part of Centre of Excellence will harbor the following facilities:

Animal cell culture facility

Nematode model system

Zebrafish housing facility
