Only two days before Iran's fourth Nanotechnology exhibition 5 new nano products unveiled on Monday promise an impressive collection on display this year. Nano-Capillary Electrophoresis that makes the study and identification of single molecules possible; a nanospectrometer which can help identify the properties different chemical compounds; a Deep reactive ion etching or DRIE... a tool that can deposit thin films of material making the production of nanostructures possible. And ... a high resolution nano-imaging system The nano-imaging system has great applications for drugs that undergo preclinical or animal testing. It can provide a high resolution image of the body of the animal and show the researchers exactly how their bodies have reacted to the drug. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hailed the efforts made by societies and researchers who have managed to break the western monopoly on hi-tech nano products. Despite political pressures and economic sanctions Iranian scientists have managed to make great advancement and take impressive steps in nano technology. While the most eye-catching product unveiled is nano-drug that can be used to effectively cure cancer. This drug is produced only in one country and the price is around $2000. Now patients in Iran can get it for half to one third of that price and as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday the costs will be covered by insurance Doxorubicin is a compound that destroys cancer tumors but it also has terrible side effects. The nanoliposom form only targets the tumors not healthy cells of the body. The new drug has received the approval of the food and drug division of Iran's Health ministry and will hit the market soon.
