Nano Test Tubes Fabricated

Researchers from the University of Florida have found a way to make minuscule test tubes from carbon and silica nanotubes. The nano test tubes could eventually be used -- along with tiny caps -- to bottle small numbers of molecules such as drugs, DNA, or proteins and release them in specific places in the human body.
