Capillary Electrophoresis System Manufactured in Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Fanavaran Nano-Meghyas Company started
mass-production of Capillary Electrophoresis System.
Taking into account the
ever-increasing importance of the identification of nanometric
compounds, various methods are employed every day for the identification
and separation of such structures. Among all identification techniques,
capillary electrophoresis possesses a unique position. This technique
has been based on the mobility behavior of electrophoretic particles
within a capillary tube with an internal diameter of approximately 100
micrometers between two electrodes by imposing high voltage, and it can
help the identification of such structures.
In other words, each particle with its specific properties in size,
morphology, and surface chemistry passes with a unique velocity through
the capillary tube that has been connected from the two ends to two
10-30 kV electrodes. A UV-Visible detector, placed at the end of the
path, records the time of the particle passage in the form of
In addition to its wide applications in nanotechnology, this device can
be used in the qualitative and quantitative identification of medicine,
biological systems such as proteins and peptides, and even DNA
sequencing. The said applications provide a more extended market for
this device. Moreover, this device has significant advantages over HPLC
because it does not require high amount of solvent, and it needs little
amount of sample.
Only a limited number of countries had so far been able to produce this
device, but Iran is able to produce and present this device to the
domestic and international markets, and to sell it at a cheaper price in
comparison with other samples.
