Photo: Microchip [19/05/2014] A U.S. and Korean research team has developed a chip-like device that could be scaled up to sort and store hundreds of thousands of individual living cells in a matter of minutes. The system is similar to a random access memory chip, but it moves cells rather than electrons. Microchip-like technology allows single-cell analysis - Read more
