Since agglomeration shifts particle size distributions to higher medians and may result in microparticle formation, it affects the stability of suspensions and may lead to sedimentation. Larger particles may show less nano-size-specific toxicity and sedimentation may become a clearance effect that changes the effective dose. This underlines the importance of a comprehensive characterization of nanoparticle suspensions. Further, it has to be considered that nanotoxicological studies working with the most dispersed nanomaterials may represent worst-case scenarios that may not be representative for nanoparticles in their usual agglomeration state.

Determination of nanoparticle release rates, persistency, concentrations and distribution kinetics requires careful design of laboratory tests or strategies to distinguish nanoparticles of natural sources from that of synthetic origin during field testing. In the latter case, such a distinction may require advanced labeling strategies for nanoparticles, for instance by isotopes or fluorescence markers. E.
