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.
