Researchers at Tehran University of Medical Sciences have developed a biosensor that can detect cancer through speedy tracking of the tumor cells and with high accuracy. “Over the past six years, we have developed a number of biosensors to detect cancer and its progression, but the latest one is cost-effective, fast, and highly accurate,” said Dr. Mohammad Abdolahad, project manager and faculty member at the TUMS. The system, called ‘Metastatic Cancer Detection Biosensor’, was developed using nano technology and belongs to the 10th generation of cancer detection sensors, Mehr News Agency reported. “The sensor has successfully completed the lab trials and is now in the clinical trial phase,” said Abdolahad. It is being tested to check breast, prostate, and lymph nodes cancers among others and has been patented in Iran and the US.
