The company Nanomaterials, which operates at the TSU Nanocenter, created a set of devices for universities in North Carolina (USA). The equipment makes it possible to use a magnetic field to fight cancer. The device generates a low-frequency magnetic field to control biochemical reactions through magnetic nanoparticles introduced into the suspension. These magnetic particles can be used to selectively target the affected cells, leading to their subsequent death. Thus, the complex makes it possible to target malignant formations without harming healthy tissues.

- We develop devices for scientific teams, that is why all our equipment is R&D. Each order we collect under individual requirements of our partners with the most flexible and wide set of parameters and settings, - the general director of enterprise "Nanomaterials" Alexey Shuklinov shared. - Our equipment is used in research centers throughout the country, including leading nanobiomed centers of Russia at Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov and some others. In addition, we make devices for export, and our equipment is used by Yerevan State University in Armenia and two universities in USA: the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and East Carolina University.
