Iran gains know-how of optical drug detectors

Tehran, June 3, IRNA – An Iranian startup company achieved the knowledge of manufacturing biological narcotics detectors with ability to detect solid and liquid drugs based on nanoparticles optical properties.

Flexibility to detect different narcotics, including a high sensitivity to morphine, is among advantages of the detectors.


Alem Abedini, a co-founder of the startup, said that the laboratory-scale detector has successfully passed all tests.


The detector can be used in laboratories, airports, prisons, customs offices and all places that are likely to deal with narcotics, he said, adding that the device can also detect drug-soaked objects, he said.


Abedini also noted that mass production of the detector would begin after finding investors for the project.
