Russia to offer nanotechnology for blood plasma cleaningJuly 22nd, 2008 - 7:07 pm ICT by IANS
Denver (US), July 22 (RIA Novosti) Nanotechnology would soon allow people to have their blood plasma cleaned relatively inexpensively, the head of Russia’s Nanotechnology Corp said. Leonid Melamed is leading a Rosnanotech delegation at a three-day summit on nano-renewable energy that opened in Denver in the US last Sunday.
“We could possibly have an opportunity to test the technology in December,” Melamed told his US counterparts at the meeting.
Russians have so far been able to have their blood plasma cleaned during an almost two-hour session of plasmapheresis priced at up to 5,000 rubles ($215) at clinics.
Patients can undergo treatment for metabolic disorder and remove toxins from their blood.
Melamed said fitness centres and beauty parlours could soon use nanotechnology to offer plasmopheresis to their customers.
Melamed invited Clayton Teague, who heads the US National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, to attend an international nanotechnology forum to be held in Moscow Dec 3-5 this year.
On the first day of the summit, Michael Bruce, senior advisor for finance at the US Department of Energy, described nanotechnology as an important sector for national security, finance and environmental protection.
Alexander Losyukov, Rosnanotech deputy general director for international contacts, said earlier, “One of our tasks is to introduce the corporation to our American partners and to outline directions for specific cooperation and prospects for the implementation of joint projects”.
