High Speed Microfluidic Guillotine Helps to Study How Cells Repair Themselves

  There are single cell organisms in existence that, after being cut in two, regenerate themselves into two separate fully functional living beings. Understanding the mechanism of this ability can help to better study cancer, improve treatment for physical injuries, and track the development of neurodegenerative diseases. But, carefully splitting single cells into two is a slow […]
