|Multitasking Plasmonic Nanobubbles Kill Diseased Cells, Modify Others |
ScienceDaily (Dec. 3, 2012) — Researchers at Rice University have found a way to kill some diseased cells and treat others in the same sample at the same time. The process activated by a pulse of laser light leaves neighboring healthy cells untouched.
