  • ITMO Chemists' New Technology Detects Antibiotics in Milk

    With electrochemical analysis (a high sensitivity method for detecting target substances in solutions) and machine learning at its core, the new technology developed at ITMO can automatically detect the exact quantity of antibiotics in milk. Apart from protecting consumers from harmful substances, the new solution can be used to analyze other environments, such as oil (for revealing unwanted contaminants), coffee (for determining its quality), and wine (for verifying its authenticity). The technology with its underlying research was described in an article in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

  • ITMO Scientists Suggest New Synthesis Method For Nanoparticles Used in Cancer Treatment and Diagnostics

    Researchers from ITMO’s ChemBio Cluster have suggested a new way of synthesizing magnetic nanoparticles for cancer treatment and diagnostics. Thanks to machine learning at the core of the new approach, the scientists can quickly select the properties of nanoparticles for efficient MRI diagnostics and hyperthermia treatment. With the new method, the synthesis of a single nanoparticle takes just a few seconds – compared to the hours required in the conventional experimental approach. The method was described in a paper published in Small.
