Cell separator developed for detecting cancer

TEHARN, Nov. 22 (MNA) – Researchers from Sharif University of Technology have developed and commercialized cell separators to be used for detecting cancer and treating infertility.

Sina Asadalizadeh, program director of development and technology transfer office at Sharif University of Technology, told Mehr News correspondent that the developed cell separators have applications in laboratories and research centers.

He maintained that the cell separator’s LS column containing microbeads separate the marked cells which will be then used in various experiments.

Noting that separating cells are applicable for oncology and immunology, Asadalizadeh added the researchers are currently working on a different model of cell separators that can be used for infertility treatment.

The separator has been funded by Iran Nanotechnology Initative Council and currently available in the market. The Food and Drug Administration has approved the device.
