UCLA team packs large cargo into cells

A group of UCLA researchers has come up with a new method designed to deliver nanoparticles, enzymes, antibodies, bacteria and other "large-sized" cargo into mammalian cells at the rate of 100,000 cells per minute--way faster than any of the other methods now in use. This new approach could make a major difference for scientists working on drugs to treat diseases spurred by mutant mitochondrial DNA or to get a better understanding of the role genes play in the life cycle of pathogens. "Now it doesn't matter the size or type of material you want to deliver. You can just push all of it into the cell," said study leader Eric Pei-Yu Chiou. Release
