Iranian scientists build biological nano-sensor for early cancer diagnosis

The new cancer-diagnosis sensor developed by Haniyeh Fayazfar is simple, inexpensive and highly sensitive.

Iranian researchers have designed a biological sensor for early detection of cancer.

Dr. Haniyeh Fayazfar, a material engineering student at Sharif University and lead author of the study, said, “Extra-sensitive biological sensor is of significance in early DNA diagnosis of 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 mutation consequence.

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

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