Image: Lipid nanoprobes (blue, green, and yellow colored) spontaneously insert themselves into lipid bilayer of three extracellular vesicles. The cargo content of extracellular vesicles includes proteins, DNA, and RNA. The lipid nanoprobe-labeled extracellular vesicles are captured onto the surface of a magnetic bead (black, bottom) through interaction with conjugated avidin molecules (red) (Photo courtesy of Xin Zou / Pennsylvania State University).

Lipid Nanoprobe Method Enables Rapid Isolation of Extracellular Vesicles

A novel method reduces the amount time required to isolate extracellular vesicles (EVs) from culture media or blood plasma from hours to 15 minutes and does not require bulky or expensive equipment. More...

High-Res Imaging Obtained with Conventional Microscopes

Researchers have developed a technique for obtaining high-resolution images of tissue samples with confocal microscopes, at a fraction of the cost of other techniques that offer similar resolution. This level of resolution allowed them to see, for example, proteins that cluster together in complex patterns at brain synapses. More...

Image: A scanning-electron microscope (SEM) image of chemically-fixed HeLa cancer cells on the gold nanopyramid substrate. Following nanosecond laser pulses, the tips of the pyramids create tiny holes in the cell membranes, allowing molecular cargo to diffuse into the cells (Photo courtesy of Harvard University).

Heating Method Developed for Rapid Delivery of Macromolecules

A team of cancer researchers developed a precise and controlled mechanism that rapidly introduces molecules as large as proteins or nucleic acids into living cells. More...
