AS a growing number of producers look towards nanotechnology to enhance their products, there is a need to safeguard consumers and ensure the quality of such products, says Nanoverify Sdn Bhd managing director Johan Iskandar Hasan.
“We are moving in the right direction. But as with any other technology, the main concern is safety. We don’t want nanotechnology to take the route of GMO (genetically-modified organism). So we want to manage expectations and the risk involved,” he says.
