Carbon nanopipette can measure electrical signals of cells while injecting fluids

January 31, 2008, Philadelphia, PA--University of Pennsylvania engineers and physicians have developed a carbon nanopipette thousands of times thinner than a human hair that can probe cells with minimal intrusion and inject fluids without damaging or inhibiting cell growth.

January 31, 2008, Philadelphia, PA--University of Pennsylvania engineers and physicians have developed a carbon nanopipette thousands of times thinner than a human hair that measures electric current and delivers fluids into cells. Researchers developed this tiny carbon-based tool to probe cells with minimal intrusion and inject fluids without damaging or inhibiting cell growth.
