By Shelley, Suzanne Innovations in Micro- and Nanotechnology to Measure Living Cells Living cells are complicated bioreactors with a plethora of multi- stage reaction sequences occurring simultaneously to sustain life. Through the development of more-sophisticated nanostructures and microdevices, chemical engineers are better able to measure and monitor these cellular and subcellular processes. Cell analysis over the last 25 years has traditionally been performed at the macro scale....
