Iranian researchers at the University of Isfahan designed a nanometric biosensor which can diagnose lung cancer at an early stage.
Diagnosis of lung cancer via detection of available biomarkers at low concentrations in the blood-stream is one of the promising features of this biosensor, which allows early detection and considerably increases the chance of treatment. This noninvasive approach is very cost effective and it is based on carbon graphite electrodes.
Yalda Shoja, a postdoctoral researcher, Ahmad Kermanpur and Fathallah Karimzadeh, faculty members, are key team members of this project at the University of Isfahan.
The results of this project are published in the Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics with an impact factor of 8.173.
