Abstract:   (10859 Views)
There exist numerous methods for detection and identification of bioterrorism agents. Some of these methods were developed before and some after the September 11th crisis. Even though some of these methods have been claimed to be fast, exact and trustable, the reality is that a very rare variety of such methods are applicable to the detection of bioterrorism agents. In recent decades the fronteirs of science have advanced and new discoveries have lead humanity to better and more efficient products. One of these products is Nanotechnology. Detection of chemical bombs and bioterrorism agents is one of the basic activities in modern war defense. Thus, the development of new tools that are able to directly analyze, be exact and fast is of high importance in methods and tools of detection. With the advancement of science and development of electronic devices and the new technological power that has come to man’s use in the recent decades, the need for construction of more efficient and smaller detectors is sensed more.
