BioProbes Core Project Update

Recent news: “Cell Electrophysiology with Carbon Nanopipettes” by M.G. Schrlau, N.J. Dun, and H.H. Bau was recently published in ACS Nano.  The article was also featured in an editorial article entitled, “Bridging Macro and Nano” by P.T. Hammond and specifically introduced in the journal. 


Dr. Michael Schrlau was invited to give a talk on April 7th about carbon-based nanostructures and their applications in cell physiology at the Cafe Scientifique Philadelphia, co-hosted by The Franklin Institute.  In the talk, Dr. Schrlau highlighted carbon nanotubes/nanopipes and how they motivated the development of CNPs and their application as cell injectors and sensors.
