Iranian scientists build biological nano-senor for early cancer diagnosis

Iranian scientists build biological nano-senor for early cancer diagnosis

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers have designed a biological sensor for early detection of cancer.

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers have designed a biological sensor for early detection of cancer.

The material used by nano-structure material is of high sustainability and economical.

Dr. Haniyeh Fayazfar, a material engineering student in Sharif University and lead author of the study, said, "Extra-sensitive biological sensor is of significance in early DNA diagnosis for cancer. Biological-electrochemical sensors make it possible."

She noted that the aim of the project is to build and investigate a biological sensor extra-sensitive in early diagnosis of DNA consecutives, related to cancer genetic mutation.

She also said simple production, low cost, swift response and high sensitivity are some features of the nano-sensor.

The method is used for geno-sensors for early diagnosis of genetic mutation and DNA consecutives.

The results of the study have been published in Analytica Chimica Acta.
