Abstract:
Iran plans to display its latest achievements, including four hi-tech laboratory tools and equipment and one nano-produced drug, in the 4th International Nanotechnology Festival (Iran Nano 2011).

Iran Manufactures Hi-Tech Lab Equipment

Tehran, Iran | Posted on October 3rd, 2011

The achievements were also unveiled in a ceremony in the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday.

These indigenized technologies include BET analyzer, Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DIRE), Capillary Electrophoresis instrument (capable of both qualitative and quantitative analyses for drug products), HiReSPECT instrument with potential for small animal 3D high resolution imaging.

The laboratory BET analyzer can afford characterization data for catalysts, nanocatalysts, adsorbents, membranes (Nano porous structures), nanofibers, nanotubes, and thin films.

The Capillary Electrophoresis instrument (CEP 1000) features short analysis time, high efficiency and minimum sample intakes. The apparatus covers a wide spectrum of chemicals in areas like food, biology, environment and nanotechnology.

The DIRE device can form micro and nanometric vertically or horizontally aligned structures. It has potential applications which includes, but not limited to, purification of materials such as Si, Si3N4, and SiO2; synthesis of nanowires and nanopores as in optical detectors; gas and force nanosensors; synthesis of AFM cantilever; fabrication of micro pressure gauges; micrometric gyroscopes. The choice of appropriate gases has omitted the need for usage of polymers as well as offering the possibility for production of unique structures.

Small animal imaging is a new branch of imaging which effectively contributes to drug development and cancer research. HiReSPECT is the instrument which enables 2D-imaging from every 360 angels of a mouse that has been injected with a desired radioisotope. A computer software package processes the data from HiReSPECT and creates 3D visualizations to help better investigation of drug propagation inside the animal's body.
