Optimizing Nanoparticle-Cell Interactions Using Microfluidics

Thanks to work from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School, researchers now have a new tool that will enable them to rapidly assess how well a given set of nanoparticles interact with a selected type of cell. Such data should enable researchers to better select the optimal nanoparticle for a given application before conducting in vivo experiments.
