Researchers gain better understanding of cell function with nanoscale tweezers

from R&D Magazine

Researchers have begun using nanoscale tweezers that use electrical impulses to extract single DNA, proteins and organelles from living cells without causing damage. A research team from Imperial College London has developed a new technique based on a phenomenon called dielectrophoresis that enables the tweezers to generate a sufficiently high electric field to enable the trapping of certain objects such as single molecules and particles. more
