Tiny fluorescent crystals barely visible to the human eye that could revolutionise cancer diagnosisTopics: Medicine
Researchers from France, Russia and Britain specializing in the highly-complex field of nanotechnology have developed a method of labeling specific molecules within cells using nano-scale marker particles that can be detected by their very strong fluorescence when any light from ultraviolet to red is shown on them.
Already the team are using them to study tissue samples from patients to detect and monitor in real time specific molecules inside cancer cells, made possible because of a series of scientific triumphs not previously achieved.
