Lines of business of the organization

Priority direction of FSUE RFNC- ARDEPh named after academician E.I. Zababakhin activity is the production and maintenance of nuclear weapon availability, performance of work in the field of peaceful application of atomic energy. The Institute performs the conversion works in the interests of FES, atomic and energy sector, OJSC, RRW, develops the modern medical technology, alternative energy sources and equipment for physical protection, actively cooperates with the outstanding scientific and industrial centers of Russia and foreign partners.

Brief description of the project

The given project is the result of a joint work of ChelSu and ChelSMA, performed in 2006 -2007 of the production of an experimental prototype of a medical laser for the photodynamic therapy.

Within the framework of a project the experimental prototypes of medical lasers for 3 methods of photodynamic therapy, thermotherapy and osteoperforation tested in ChelSMA will be elaborated and produced as well as will be organized the production of experimental prototypes of the devices for the extended tests in the medical establishments of the Chelyabinsk region.

Total cost of the project

8,5 million rubles

Required investment

5 million rubles (2 million rubles in 2008)

Payback period of the project (years)

2 years

Project documents

The medical methods are accompanied by corresponding patents. The design documentation on the photodynamic therapy laser is available.

Current project status

The project has been elaborated and is given to ChelSMA for conduction of clinical trials, the most powerful laser for the broadband photodynamic therapy, elaborated and produced in FSUE RFNC- ARDEPh.

The development of a thermotherapy laser is in progress.

Expected forms of cooperation

The plans and methods elaborated in cooperation with ChelSu and ChelSMA will be proposed for introduction to other medical establishments of Chelyabinsk, Chelyabinsk region and to other regions of Russia as well. FSUE RFNC- ARDEPh is ready to provide the enterprises- producers of concrete models of medical lasers which are advisably to be established in Chelyabinsk and Chelyabinsk region with all the necessary optoelectronic components.

The preparation of the medical personnel to the use of devices and methods is a very important moment; it will be organized on the basis of ChelSU and ChelSMA.
