Iranian researchers used nanoparticles to design a highly accurate and high speed biosensor that can accurately detect the level of HCG hormone in the body, Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council website reports. “The sensor is of biocompatible, stable and cheap raw materials and can be used in medical diagnosis centers and clinics after mass production. The research has been carried out at the laboratorial scale,” says the website. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is the first hormone created during pregnancy and in some diseases by various types of tumors.Therefore, it is very important to measure this hormone in clinics and diagnostic centers. The most important objective of the research was to eliminate the need for advanced and expensive devices to measure the hormone.
