According to recent research published in the Soil Science Society of America Journal, "Environmental nanoparticles exist in the hydrosphere, pedosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere. Their biogeochemical and ecological impacts are some of the fastest growing areas of research today."
"However, efficient separation of environmental nanoparticles remains difficult. The objective of this study was to develop an automated ultrafiltration device (AUD) for efficient collection of environmental nanoparticles. The AUD utilizes an automated hydraulic ram to facilitate collection of nanoparticles using the ultrafiltration membrane with pore size in the range of 1 to 100 nm....
