From LOC to LIC: Using individual cells as experimentation platforms
2005 (English)In: Nanobiotechnology, ISSN 1551-1286, Vol. 1, no 3, 319-321 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
There are many efforts today trying to mimic the properties of single cells in order to design chips that are as efficient as cells. However, cells are nature's nanotechnology engineering at the scale of atoms and molecules. Therefore, it might be better to vision a microchip that utilizes a single cell as experimentation platform. A novel, so-called Lab-in-a-Cell (LIC) concept is described, where advantage is taken of micro/nanotechnological tools to enable precise control of the biochemical cellular environment and possibility to analyze the composition of single cells.
