Researchers at Gilan University of Medical Sciences designed a lab-scale prototype of a sensor for early diagnosis of breast cancer.
Detecting biomarkers in the blood sample is one method to diagnose breast cancer. In this project, by using electrochemical Nano-Biosensors and detecting specific biomarkers like miRNA, an early-detection method has been developed for Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC).
Scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, infrared and UV-Vis spectrophotometer methods have been used to characterize the Nano-Biosensor.
Dr. Ammar Ebrahimi and Dr. Iraj Nikokarab, faculty members, Mehrdad Zokaei and Dr. Elahe Bozorgzadeh, researchers, at Gilan University of Medical Sciences are key team members working on this project. The results of the study are published in the Journal of Talanta with an impact factor of 4.24.
