Iran Presents Technological Capabilities at Nanotech 2012 Exhibition
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Japan Nanotechnology Exhibition, Nanotech 2012,
was inaugurated at Tokyo International Exhibitions Center on February
15th with six companies from the Islamic Republic of Iran actively
participating in the event, for the fifth consecutive year.
mentioned Iranian participants are as follows: Payamavaran
Nanotechnology Fardanegar (manufacturer of nanomaterials synthesis
equipment), Fanavaran Nano-Meghyas
(manufacturer of electrospinning and elecrophoresis equipment),
Nanotechnology System Corporation (NATSYCO) (manufacturer of
STM (Scanning Tunneling Microscope) A microscope that can image down
to the atomic level. An STM uses a piezoelectric tube with a tiny sharp
tip at the end that is moved within nanometers of the object being
AFM (Atomic Force Microscope) A device used to image materials at
the atomic level. AFMs are used to solve processing and materials
problems in electronics, telecom, biology and other high-tech
industries. microscopes), Iran Riff Company (producer of nano paints),
Nanostructured Coating Company (manufacturer of sputtering apparatus)
and Middle East Bio-Researchers (producer of ethylene adsorbents used to
improve the preservation of agricultural crops).
addition, the Iranian fabricated version of the anticancer drug
Doxorubicin HCl, which has been proved to be effective in treatment of a
wide spectrum of cancers, was put on display in Nanotech 2012.
other participating countries of the event mention can be made of
Belgium, Canada, Germany, South Korea, Finland, Spain, Switzerland,
Taiwan, Czech Republic, Britain and the US.
Concurrently with the opening day of Nanotech 2012, Asian Nano Forum
(ANF) members took the opportunity to hold a meeting with the Iranian
representatives in attendance. Also, a seminar focusing on Iran's
capabilities and growth in nanotechnology is arranged to be delivered on
the last day of Nanotech 2012.
Japan Nanotechnology Exhibition is marked as the world's biggest and
most prestigious exhibition in the field and has been held consecutively
for eleven years. The Islamic Republic of Iran is currently attending
