Nanoscale field-effect transistors developed to probe cells

By / August 12, 2010

In the journal Science, a new device is described that fashions nanowires into a transistor small enough to probe the interior of cells. A Harvard press release reports that the new device is smaller than many viruses and about one-hundredth the width of the probes now used to take cellular measurements, which can be nearly…
