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.

The Promise of Nanotechnology

“The use of nanotechnology in consumer products and industrial applications is growing rapidly, with the products listed in the inventory showing just the tip of the iceberg.  How consumers respond to these early products — in food, electronics, health care, clothing and cars — will be a litmus test for broader market acceptance of nanotechnologies in the future.”
