The EMP manufactured domestically for the very first time in the country. The filter has been implemented in a number of vital centers in Iran. [1]

Unveiling anti-intrusion seismic sensor

A science-based company of Iran disclosed its newest achievement that protects sensitive areas from illegal intrusion. The system which is comprised of seismic sensor, signal convertor and power source, has benefits like being passive, not changing site aesthetics, and having a covert presence as it does not need direct sighting of the area. The system, also allows authorized activity in the vicinity of the protected area defining personal signals for each user. [2]

New Sensors Measure Blood Anti-Coagulation Drug

Iranian researchers from Isfahan University of Technology produced a highly sensitive and accurate sensor which can measure a type of blood anti-coagulation drug. The sensor was produced through a simple and cost-effective method and its application does not require advanced skills. In addition to its high speed, this sensor minimizes environmental pollution due to the use of very low concentration of quantum dots in the production of the sensor and the lack of the need for toxic and organic solvents. Results of the research have been published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics, vol. 71, issue 1, 2015, pp. 243-248. [3]

Iran among top 10 producers of SPF eggs

Iran joined the top 10 producers of specific pathogen-free (SPF) chicken eggs in the world following inauguration of the SPF egg production line. Iran had over the past three decades imported the SPF eggs but is now self-sufficient in production of such eggs. The SPF egg production project is now operational at the Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute. The country would export eggs to neighboring states in case international conditions are met.[4]

Production of high-speed AFM

Iranian researchers have designed atomic force microscope (AFM) which is able of taking 2000 images from the intended processes in two seconds and pave the way for producing AFM videos from laboratory processes. The high-speed AFM could be used to investigate progress of processes with high-speed imaging. Using the device, it is possible to take photos from the forming crystal or drug effects on virus in time. [5]

Biosensor can diagnose effective cancer drugs

Iranian researchers have designed a biosensor which can be used in measuring drugs effects on stability of DNA Shroud-laid structure to prevent cancer cells growth. The biosensor is also used to investigate performance of a number of drugs making the structure more stable. The method has applied gold Nano-particles and is economic and with high precision. [6]

Implementation of domestic IDS against malware

Iran has implemented a domestic intrusion detection system (IDS) which is capable of protecting production lines in industrial organizations against cyber attacks and malwares. The intrusion detection system has been now installed in 150 spots around the country. This domestically-manufactured system is able to protect production lines in industrial organizations against malwares.  [7]

Using Magnetic Field to Transfer Anticancer Drug to Tumor Tissue

Iranian researchers from Tabriz University of Medical Sciences produced a new type of anticancer drug Nano carriers by using magnetic nanoparticles to treat lung cancer. The Nano carrier is able to transfer the drug into the tumor tissue by using an external magnetic field. Results of the research have been published in Journal of Microencapsulation, vol. 31, issue 8, 2014, pp. 815-823. [8]

 

 

Iran breaks Denmarks factor VII monopoly

Following research and endeavor of Iranian pharmacologists in a science-based company, AryoSeven production line inaugurated. AryoSeven has so far been monopolistically produced by a Danish company. AryoSeven is a bio similar recombinant form of human factor VII and is commonly prescribed for people with hemophilia. The Iranian product in price is sold one-third of the Danish copy. [9]

Tabriz University builds smart device for drivers

In a bid to reduce car accidents Iranian researchers at Tabriz University, northwestern Iran, have designed a smart device to detect fatigue, drowsiness and mental distraction of drivers. A small camera is installed inside the system which shows the face of the driver all the time. The system takes 10 pictures of the driver every second and sends the pictures to the processor. The processor, using image-processing algorithms, extracts the condition of drivers’ eyes. In cases the eyes are closed more than a specific time, the alarm rings and awakens drivers. [10]

Iran sole producer of Penicillin G in Mideast

Iran is now the only producer of Penicillin G in the Middle East. Production of the medicine has made Iran needless of importing it while at the same time resulted in the localization of the technical knowledge. During the past two years great efforts have been made in the country for the operation of the production line of Penicillin G which was realized due to the efforts of domestic experts and local knowledge. [11]

Building rain simulator to investigate soil erosion

Iranian researchers at a science park in West Azerbaijan Province have developed a rain simulator to investigate soil erosion caused by raining. The simulated water creates runoff, helping the researchers to calculate soil erosion in raining and water penetration too. [12]

Plant Nano fibers to treat diabetic ulcers

Researchers at Amir Kabir University of Technology have developed Nano-scaffolds from some kind polymer fibers useful in treating diabetic ulcers. Using the plant Nano fibers in treating diabetic ulcers has the advantage of being cheap, antimicrobial properties and accessibility of the plant in various parts of Iran. The produced Nano fiber has a structure similar to human skin and as such has a good biodegradation rate. [13]

Engineers develop system lessening gasoline engines pollution

Iranian researchers at a science park in Semnan Province have designed a system, working in laboratory phase, which can reduce pollution in gasoline engines when the engine power improves. The system improves gasoline engine efficiency by 30-40 percent and consequently reduces environmental contamination. [14]

Student invents device to save GTs

Hossein Goudarzi, the researcher from Amir Kabir University of Tehran has invented a laser-tech dust measure which defines the proper time for changing the air filter of gas turbines (GT) preventing harms of accumulated dust in filtering systems. The device with no foreign version can alarm the time of changing the filters and save around 200 to 400 million dollars in depreciation and maintenance costs of the turbines. [15]

Visible Light-Sensitive Photo catalysts Used for Purification of Contaminated Water

Iranian researchers from Isfahan University of Technology produced photo catalysts that do not require ultraviolet light for water purification process and they reduce the costs. In addition to water purification industry and elimination of harmful organic contaminants, the outcomes of the research can be used in the elimination of gas contaminants from air and in the production of gas sensors to be used in petroleum and gas industries. Results of the research have been published in Ceramics International, vol. 4, issue 7, 2015, pp. 8735-8741.[16]

Drawers invented to obviate touching in CRs

Researcher of a tech-based company in Razi University of Kermanshah has invented a drawer which operates hands free. According to the innovator, the smart drawer can come handy in clean rooms where doctors or operators are required to practice sanitary measures including sterilizations of the object and hands in action. Compare to foreigner versions, Iranian product features more complicated opening and closing system with identifying the hand of the user and detecting more than 50 operative hand moves each signaling a specific action. [17]

Iran designs Nano membrane to purify wastewater

Iranian researchers have designed a Nano membrane which can purify colored and industrial wastewaters in one phase. The Nano membrane’s output is as clean as drinking water and has higher efficiency in removing pollutants. It also reduces the operating costs significantly. [18]

Magnetic nanoparticles to treat cancer

Researchers at University of Tehran have made a breakthrough in the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles which can be used as a good alternative in cancer treatment. One way to treat cancer and kill cancer cells is through injecting magnetic nanoparticles into the cancerous tissue. Since cancer cells are killed in a lower temperature than healthy cells, the temperature for nanoparticles must be higher than the temperature for killing cancer cells and lower than the point that would be damaging to healthy ones. In this project the researchers succeeded in obtaining such temperature. The results of the research have been issued in Materials Characterization (volume 106, issue no. 1, 2015, pp. 78-85). [19]

Low temp. ZrC produced 1st time in Iran

Scientists in Islamic Azad University branch of Najafabad managed to produce Zirconium (ZrC) carbide powder in low-heat for the first time in the world. The method does not necessitate the traditional high-temperature process and accordingly reduces the costs on the way getting ZrC and improves the anti-corrosive quality of the final material. The result of their scientific efforts on this project has formed a paper published in Ceramics International journal of August 2015, Pages 8397–8401. [20]

Iran nationalizes VWT technology

Being supported by Science and Technology Vice-Presidency, an Iranian scientist has constructed a vertical wind tunnel in Mashhad and thereby the technology has been nationalized. It is a macro-scale national technology in which a science-based company helped the project director who has spent years studying in this field, to put into practice his theoretic achievements. [21]

Hydrogen detector made by Iranian scientists

 Since hydrogen gas which being used as a fuel in many places is highly flammable and there is difficulty in detecting it, the scientists in Iranian Islamic Azad University have succeeded in designing the sensor to alert hydrogen leak before any disaster.[22]
