* Nano Technique Allows Precise Injection of Living Cells
*

June 14, 2007: Specialized pulsed lasers have been used to inject individual cells with a variety of materials, but little is known about how this might affect them. For the first time, researchers have analyzed this process on living cells and discovered that minor changes in the intensity of the laser could mark the difference between a healthy cell and a dead one.
