Iranian researchers have improved properties of polymeric materials in food packaging by exploiting nanoparticles of clay and iron oxide. Simultaneous use of these two materials brings about synergic effects to further boost the shelf life of food and pharmaceuticals. The results of the research have been published in Trends in Food Science & Technology journal, Volume 51, 2016, pages 41 48.[1]

 

Iranian biosensor makes accurate & cheap cancer detection

 

Iranian scientists have developed highly accurate and cost-efficient biosensors that can detect cancers that require tissue sampling such as breast cancer, prostate cancer and caner in lymph nodes. The biosensors have been designed and developed via nanotechnology and is simple to use, highly cost-efficient, easily accessible and very accurate. This system has been patented in Iran and the US, and no other country has yet the technology to develop such a biosensor.[2]

 

Researchers develop incubator for microbial culture  

 

Researchers at Amirkabir University of Technology have developed an incubator for culturing cells and microbes for the first time in the country. The incubator has applications in laboratories and research centers and is essential for a lot of experimental work in cell biology, microbiology and molecular biology. This device has been designed and constructed on a much lower budget than its foreign versions.[3]

 

Iranian scientists produce anti-bacterial nanocombination

 

Iranian researchers produce a kind of nanocombination with high anti-bacterial effect to resist infectious diseases. They can prevent of bacteria culturing for two weeks. This nanocombination is useful for food and textile industries and for elimination of pollutions from water. Results of the research have been published in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology.[4]

 

Jujube syrup for treating diabetes & high blood pressure

 

Iranian researchers have produced jujube syrup that has health benefits for blood detoxification and is also effective on patients with diabetes and high blood pressure. The syrup is also effective for metabolic syndrome, abdominal obesity, fatty liver disease and reducing blood viscosity.[5]

 

Researchers develop coral nanoscaffold for treating damaged bones  

 

Iranian researchers at Amirkabir University develop coral nanoscaffold for treating damaged bones in less than three months. This type of nanoscaffold is suitable for cell proliferation because of its similarity to the cellular structure of the body. It has high mechanical property and is able to tolerate different weights.[6]

 

New method for accelerating wound healing process  

 

Scientists at Sharif University provide nanocomposite wound dressing with anti-bacterial property that can accelerate wound healing process. This kind of wound dressing has suitable mechanical and biological properties and can be used in skin tissue engineering, drug delivery and preparation of artificial skin. Results of the research have been published in Journal of Composites: Part A.[7]

 

Iranian researchers use nanotech. to improve addiction tests

 

Iranian researchers have used nanotechnology to introduce a quick and very accurate method for detecting addiction. This method is able to detect the consumption of drugs in people who used the drug 6 months before the test. The method of sampling is the most important difference between the presented method and other usual addiction test methods. The sample in this method is taken from a few hairs, and it turns into a solution. Results of the research have been published in Forensic Science, Medicine, and Pathology, vol. 11, issue 4, 2015, and pp.497-503.[8]

 

Researchers produce sensors for early diagnosis of hepatitis B  

 

Iranian researchers at Tehran University produce sensor based on modified nanoparticles for early diagnosis of hepatitis B. Since the disease is viral and contagious, early detection is important to prevent the progression of disease in patient and spread to others, too. This kind of sensor has been produced using nanotechnology and reaction between antibody and antigen.[9]

 

Scientists use nanoparticles & ultrasonic waves for treating cancer

 

Iranian researchers develop a new method for treating cancer via simultaneous use of gold nanoparticles and ultrasonic waves. One of the advantages of this method is fewer side effects on healthy tissue around the tumor. Results of the research have been published in the journal of Ultrasonics Sonochemistry.[10]

 

B) Industrial and Software equipments & findings

 

Iranian researchers produce blue nano-pigment

 

Iranian researchers at University of Zanjan have reached semi-industrial production of blue nano-pigment with high thermal resistance. The nano-pigment can be used to produce all range of colors at nanoscale. These blue nano-pigments are organic and non-toxic with high purity and can be applicable in automobile manufacturing, textile industry, stamp ink, handicrafts, rubber, and paints.[11]

 

Optimization of nanocomposite using in paint industry

 

Iranian scientists provide a new method for producing nanocomposite with better qualifications. Some of the benefits of this method are decreasing costs and improving physical properties such as increasing electrical conductivity and high absorption of electromagnetic waves. This type of nanocomposite can be used in paint industry. Results of the research have been published in the journal of Composites: Part A.[12]
