Test the conductivity of our nanoparticles that we created using probes
1. put down conductive epoxy on teflon (epoxy holds wire to teflon along with foil. wire connected to foil)
2. put down wire
3. put down square foil
Today set and let epoxy dry, get some protein and particles in small volume. Deposit all over the foil. Electrical contact. Foil can not be touching, but as close as possible. Becuase we do not know the strength of the conductivity between nanoparticles. Let them dry. Epoxy can only touch one of the leads at a time because it is conductive.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS BY ROUTE OF ENTRY
EYE: Can cause minor irritation, tearing and reddening. Can cause mechanical irritation if dusts are generated.
SKIN: Continued or prolonged contact may irritate the skin and cause a skin rash (dermatitis). May cause sensitization. Can cause light sensitivity that results in a skin rash when exposed to sunlight or ultraviolet light sources.
NHALATION: Can cause minor respiratory irritation Dust may be slightly irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of dusts produced during cuffing, grinding or sanding of this product may cause irritation of the respiratory tract May cause allergic respiratory reaction. Overexposure to iron oxide dust/fume may cause siderosis. Overexposure to crystalline silica may cause silicosis.
INGESTION: Ingestion is not an anticipated route of exposure. Harmful if swallowed.
